Carla Lisbeth Rueckert-McCarty: The Instrument/Channel That Ra Speaks Through

Carla L. Rueckert (McCarty)
was born in 1943 in Lake Forest, Illinois. She completed undergraduate studies in English Literature at the University of Louisville in 1966 and master’s degree studies in Library Service in 1971.

She served as librarian and bibliographer to college and school libraries for six years.

She was a meditator with the group Don started in early 1962, and became partners with Don in L/L Research in 1968. In 1970, she turned full-time to assisting Don with his research.

She read and abstracted books and periodicals, and did correspondence and writing for Don. In 1974, she began channeling and continued unceasingly in that effort until she was stopped in 2011 by a spinal fusion surgery.

During four of those thirty-seven years of channeling, 1981 – 1984, Carla served as the instrument for the Ra Contact. In 1987, she married Jim McCarty and together they continued the mission of L/L Research. Carla passed into larger life on April 1, 2015.

Jim McCarty’s eulogy for Carla Lisbeth Rueckert

Carla Lisbeth Rueckert-McCarty was born on July 16, 1943 in Lake Forest, IL. Carla was a child prodigy. At the age of 3 she could read the newspaper, speak French, and read music.

She would have started singing in the church choir then, but she wasn't strong enough to hold the Hymnal all the way through the processional, until the next year when she was four years old.

She was also the friendliest little girl her mother had ever seen. When they would take the bus to go downtown and shop, little Carla would wander up and down the aisle speaking to everyone who was on the bus.

She did not know a stranger. Her mother was mortified. 

When she was born her left eye was pointed at her brow, and it was about a year later when surgery was able to correct the defect, and then she started wearing glasses.

A fascinating experience occurred because she had to wear glasses at such an early age.

One day, when she was 2 years old, and when it was time for her to take her afternoon nap, her mother put her in her crib next to the window and closed the Venetian blinds. Before she went to sleep, Carla took her glasses off and put them between the blinds which were drawn for her nap.

Then she laid down and saw that there was light coming through the slit in the Venetian blinds. When it went through her glasses it made a beam of light that she was able to use to slide out of her body and go to what seemed like a magic forest. The animals would communicate with her, colors were more vivid, and when she went to the center of the forest, there she would see Jesus.

He didn't look like the paintings you usually see. His hair was long, matted, and dusty from the road.

His robe was dusty too, and he never spoke a word. But when he held her hand and looked into her eyes, she immediately knew what unconditional love was.

This experience occurred many times over the next few years. When she was five years old she told her mom and dad about the experience, and they told her that it was not real.

It was in her mind. That she had made it up. So the experience never happened again.

But her devotion to Jesus as her Lord and Savior began then and never wavered throughout her life. And from that point on, love would become her way of looking at the world.

Those two parts of this experience never changed for her.

Ra's Comments on Carla (The Instrument/Channel)

The Law of One, Book I, Session 1
January 15, 1981


Questioner: Will you be available for communication?

Can we call on you in the future?


Ra: I am Ra. We have good contact with this instrument because of her recent experiences with trance. 

She is to be able to communicate our thoughts in your future. 

However, we advise care in disturbing the channel for a few moments and then the proper procedure for aiding an instrument who has, to some extent, the need of re-entering the mind/body/spirit complex which the instrument has chosen for the life experience of this time/space. 

Do you understand how to nurture this instrument?

Questioner: No. Could you explain it?

Ra: We suggest first a brief period of silence. 

Then the repetition of the instrument’s vibratory complex of sound in your density which you call name. 

Repeat until an answer is obtained

Then the laying on of the hands at the neck region for a brief period so that the instrument may recharge batteries which are not, shall we say, full of the essence of this particular field at this time. 

And finally, a gift of water into which the love of all present has been given. 

This will restore this entity, for her distortions contain great sensitivity towards the vibrations of love and the charged water will effect comfort. 

Do you now understand?

Questioner: Not completely.

Ra: I am Ra. We search your mind to find the vibration (nickname). 

It is this vibration from you which contains the largest amount of what you would call love. 

Others would call this entity (first name). 

The charging of the water is done by those present placing their hands over the glass and visualizing the power of love entering the water

This will charge that very effective medium with those vibrations.

This instrument is, at this time, quite fatigued. 

However, her heart is such that she continues to remain open to us and useful as a channel. 

This is why we have spent the time/space explaining how the distortions of what you may call fatigue may be ameliorated.

Under no circumstances should this instrument be touched until she has responded to her name

I do not wish to take this instrument beyond her capacity for physical energy. It grows low

Therefore, I must leave this instrument. 

I leave you in the glory and peace of unity. 

Go forth in peace, rejoicing in the power of the one Creator. 

I am Ra.

The Law of One, Book I, Session 2

Questioner: Consider them asked. I don’t have anything to go on.

What is the proper use of this instrument? What should we do?

What should we do to maximize her ability and her comfort?

Ra: I am Ra. We are pleased that you have asked this question for it is not our understanding that we have the right/duty to share our perceptions on any subject but philosophy without direct question.

However, this mind/body/spirit is not being correctly used and therefore is experiencing unnecessary distortions of body in the area of fatigue.

The vibrations may well be purified by a simple turning to the circle of One and the verbal vibration while doing so of the following dialogue:

Question: “What is the Law?”
Answer: “The Law is One.”
Question: “Why are we here?”
Answer: “We seek the Law of One.”
Question: “Why do we seek Ra?”
Answer: “Ra is an humble messenger of the Law of One.”

Both Together:
“Rejoice then and purify this place in the Law of One.
Let no thought-form enter the circle we have walked about this instrument, for the Law is One.”

The instrument at this time should be in trance.

The proper alignment is the head pointed twenty degrees north-by-northeast
.
This is the direction from which the newer or New Age distortions of love/light, which are less distorted, are emanating, and this instrument will find comfort therein.

This is a sensitive instrument, by which we mean the distortions which enter her mind/body/spirit complex come from any of her senses.

Thus, it is well to do the following:
Place at the entity’s head a virgin chalice of water.
To the center, the book most closely aligned with the instrument’s mental distortions which are allied most closely with the Law of One, that being the Bible that she touches most frequently.
To the other side of the Bible, a small amount of cense, or incense, in a virgin censer.
To the rear of the book symbolizing One, opened to the Gospel of John, Chapter One,
a white candle.
The instrument would be strengthened by the wearing of a white robe.
The instrument shall be covered and prone, the eyes covered.

We feel that, though this is a complex of activity/circumstance and may seem very distorted from a purposeful teach/learning experience, these elaborations on the technique of trance will ease the mind distortions of those about the instrument as they perceive improvement in the instrument’s distortions with regard to fatigue.

We add only that if these teach/learning sessions are held during time/space during which your sunbody does not light your room that it is best to call the instrument before the lighting of the illuminatory mechanism.

I am Ra.

I leave you in the glory and the peace of the one Creator.

Rejoice in the love/light, and go forth in the power of the one Creator.

In joy, we leave you. Adonai.

The Law of One, Book I, Session 21

Questioner: I have a couple of questions that I don’t want to forget to ask in this period, so I will ask them first.

The first question is: Would the future content of this book be affected in any way if the instrument reads the material that we have already obtained?

Ra: I am Ra. The future, as you measure in time/space, communications which we offer through this instrument have no connection with the instrument’s mind complex.

This is due to two things:

first,
the fidelity of the instrument in dedicating its will to the service of the infinite Creator;

secondly,
the distortion/understanding of our social memory complex that the most efficient way to communicate material with as little distortion as possible, given the necessity of the use of sound vibration complexes, is to remove the conscious mind complex from the spirit/mind/body complex so that we may communicate without reference to any instrument’s orientation.

Questioner: Do you use the instrument’s vocabulary or your own vocabulary to communicate with us?

Ra: I am Ra. We use the vocabulary of the language with which you are familiar.

This is not the instrument’s vocabulary.

However, this particular mind/body/spirit complex retains the use of a sufficiently large number of sound vibration complexes that the distinction is often without any importance.

Session 22, February 10, 1981

Questioner: The instrument would like to ask a couple of questions of you.

The instrument would like to know why she smells the incense at various times during the day at various places?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument has spent a lifetime in dedication to service.

This has brought this instrument to this nexus in space/time with the conscious and unconscious distortion towards service, with the further conscious distortion towards service by communication.

Each time, as you would put it, that we perform this working our social memory complex vibrational distortion meshes more firmly with this instrument’s unconscious distortions towards service.

Thus we are becoming a part of this instrument’s vibratory complex and it a part of ours.

This occurs upon the unconscious level, the level whereby the mind has gone down through to the roots of consciousness which you may call cosmic.

This instrument is not consciously aware of this slow changing of the meshing vibratory complex.

However, as the dedication on both levels continues, and the workings continue, there are signals sent from the unconscious in a symbolic manner.

Because this instrument is extremely keen in its sense of smell this association takes place unconsciously, and the thought-form of this odor is witnessed by the entity.

Questioner: Secondly, she would like to know why she feels more healthy now that she has begun these sessions and feels more healthy as time goes on?

Ra: I am Ra. This is a function of the free will of the entity.

This entity has, for many of your years, prayed a certain set of sound vibration complexes before opening to communication.

Before the trance state was achieved this prayer remained within the conscious portion of the mind complex and, though helpful, was not as effective as the consequence of this prayer, as you would call this vibrational sound complex, which then goes directly into the unconscious level, thus more critically affecting the communication from the spiritual complex.

Also, this entity has begun, due to this working, to accept certain limitations which it placed upon itself in order to set the stage for services such as it now performs.

This also is an aid to re-aligning the distortions of the physical complex with regard to pain.

The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 18
Session 30, February 24, 1981

Questioner: The instrument would like to know if you could tell her whether or not this item which is called Sam Millar’s polarizer would help her physical well-being.

Could you do that?

Ra: I am Ra. As we scan the instrument we find anomalies of the magnetic field which are distorted towards our abilities to find narrow band channel into this instrument’s mind/body/spirit complex.

The polarizer of which you speak, as it is, would not be helpful.

A careful reading of this instrument’s aura by those gifted in this area, and subsequent alterations of the magnetizing forces of this polarizer, would assist the entity, Sam, in creating such a polarizer that would be of some aid to the instrument.

However, we would suggest that no electrical or magnetic equipment not necessary for the recording of our words be brought into these sessions, for we wish no distortions that are not necessary.

The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 26

QUESTIONER
The instrument had some question as to her vitality.

We were having a hard time appraising it.

Is it possible for you to comment on this?


RA I am Ra. We scan this instrument and find that we may be of service without infringement due to this instrument’s decision to abide by the most careful appraisal possible rather than the most desired.

We have been surprised that we have been able to maintain contact on a regular basis during this most intense period of negatively influenced interference.

Sexual energy transfers have at some workings given this instrument additional vital resources upon which to draw.

However, this is not so at this working and, therefore, the will of the instrument drives its bodily complex.

This instrument has no judgment about this service.

The faculty of will, while recognized as most central and valuable, could in this application cause serious distortion in bodily complex of the instrument.

May we note that martyrdom is not necessarily helpful.

We ask this instrument to examine these thoughts, judge, and discriminate the possible truth of them; and if they be deemed true, we suggest this instrument release the power of judgment to the support group whose interests are balanced far more than this instrument’s.

Allow decisions to be made without expectation or attachment to the outcome.

Our hopes, may we say, for long-term contact through this instrument depend upon its maturing ability to be of service to other-selves by accepting their help and thus remaining a viable instrument.

May we thank the questioner for allowing us to speak to this point, for we were aware of the distortions incumbent upon one whose will to serve is not regulated by knowledge of limitations of bodily-complex distortion.

QUESTIONER
Could you please terminate this contact as soon as necessary since we are not aware of the vitality of the instrument at this time?

RA I am Ra. In your way of speaking our hands are, to a certain extent, tied.

This instrument has called upon inner reserves which are dearly bought.

Therefore, we have the honor/duty of using this energy to the best of our ability.

When it becomes low we shall most certainly, as always, express the need for ending the working.

The only way of avoiding this sharing of service at whatever cost is to refrain from the working.

It is a dilemma.

QUESTIONER
I think that it might be a good idea if we terminated the contact at this time to allow the instrument to gain more necessary energy before continuing.

This is my decision at this time. I would very much like to continue the contact, but it seems to me, although I can’t tell the instrument’s level, that the instrument should not use up any more energy.

RA I am Ra. We are responding to an unasked query.

However, it is most salient, and therefore we beg your forgiveness for this infringement.

The energy has been lost to the instrument, dedicated to this purpose only.

You may do as you will, but this is the nature of the instrument’s preparation for contact and is the sole reason we may use it.

QUESTIONER
I’m not sure I fully understood you.

Could you say that a little different way?

Could you explain more completely?


RA I am Ra. Each of you in this working has consciously dedicated the existence now being experienced to service to others.

This instrument has refined this dedication through long experience with the channeling, as you term it, of Confederation philosophy, as you may say.

Thus when we first contacted this instrument it had offered its beingness, not only to service to other-selves, but service by communication of this nature.

As this contact has developed, this dedication of beingness has become quite specific.

Thus once the vital energy is dedicated by the instrument to our communications, even if the working did not occur, this vital energy would be lost to the day-by-day experience of the instrument.

Thus we indicated the importance of the instrument’s releasing of the will from the process of determining the times of working, for if the instrument desires contact, the energy is gathered and thus lost for ordinary or mundane purposes.

QUESTIONER
In that case, since the energy is already lost, we might as well continue with this session, and we should very carefully monitor the instrument and be the sole judge of when the sessions should occur.

Am I 
correct?

RA I am Ra. This is profoundly correct.

This instrument’s determination to continue contact during this period has already extended the low energy period.

QUESTIONER
This is very revealing to us. Thank you.

QUESTIONER
Can you tell me the source of the instrument’s dream of this morning that she told to me as soon as she woke up?

RA I am Ra. The feeling of the dream, shall we say, was Orion-influenced.

The clothing of the dream revealing more the instrument’s unconscious associative patterns of symbolism.

QUESTIONER
In meditation a number of years ago my arm started to glow, moving rapidly involuntarily.

What was that?

RA I am Ra. The phenomenon was an analogy made available to you from your higher self.

The analogy was that the being that you were was living in a way not understood by, shall we say, physicists, scientists, or doctors.

QUESTIONER What I am trying to get at in this session is any practices that we might be able to do to best revitalize the instrument, for it is going to be necessary to do all we can, to do this, in order to maintain our contacts.

Can you tell us what we could best do to increase the instrument’s vitality for these contacts?

RA I am Ra. Your experience was a function of your ability to contact intelligent infinity.

Therefore, it does not have a direct bearing upon this instrument’s vital energy.

We have spoken before of those things which aid this instrument in the vital energy:
the sensitivity to beauty,
to the singing of sacred music,
to the meditation and worship,
to the sharing of self with self in freely given love either in social or sexual intercourse.

These things work quite directly upon the vitality.

This instrument has a distortion towards appreciation of variety of experiences.

This, in a less direct way, aids vitality.

QUESTIONER
I am sorry that we got a little off the track today.

I think the most important thing we accomplished is knowing how to better regulate the instrument’s sessions, and I would hope that you would bear with me for my inability to select questions properly at times, since I just happen, sometimes, to probe into areas to see if there is a possible direction we may go, and once entering, I . . .

Other than that, I would just like to know if there is anything this session that we could do to make the instrument more comfortable or to improve the contact?

RA I am Ra. There are no mistakes.

Be at rest, my friend.

Each of you is most conscientious.

All is well.

I leave you in the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator.

Go forth, therefore, rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the One Infinite Creator.

I am Ra. Adonai.

The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 27

QUESTIONER
Could you give us an estimate of the instrument’s physical condition for communications now that she is rested?

RA I am Ra. This instrument’s condition as regards the bodily complex is extremely poor.

This instrument is not rested.

However, this instrument was eager for our contact.

QUESTIONER
Did the period of abstinence from contact help the instrument’s physical condition?

RA I am Ra. This is correct.

The probability of this instrument’s development of what you would call disease, either of the pulmonary nature or the renal nature, was quite significant at our previous contact.

You have averted a possible serious physical malfunction of this instrument’s bodily complex.

It is to be noted that your prayerful support was helpful, as was this instrument’s unflagging determination to accept that which was best in the long run and thus maintain the exercises recommended without undue impatience.

It is to be further noted that those things which aid this instrument are in some ways contradictory and require balance.

Thus this instrument is aided by rest, but also by diversions of an active nature.

This makes it more difficult to aid this instrument.

However, once this is known, the balancing may be more easily accomplished.

The Law of One, Book II, Session 48

Questioner: Just if there is anything that we can do to make the instrument more comfortable or to improve the contact?

Ra: I am Ra. All is well.

As we have said, this instrument is weak physically and continued work times will lengthen this weakness.

The continued contact also aids in the continued climb in vital energy of the instrument as well as the integration and vital energy of the group as an unit.

The choice is yours.
We are pleased.

All is well.

You are conscientious.
Continue so.

I am Ra.

I leave you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

Go forth, then, my friends, rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the one infinite Creator.

Adonai.

The Law of One, Book III, Session 53

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: I would first like to ask what is the instrument’s condition and then ask two questions for her.

She would like to know if she can now do one exercise period per day, and also is the pain she feels prior to doing a session due to an Orion attack?

Ra: I am Ra. The instrument’s condition is as previously stated.

In answer to the question of exercise, now that the intensive period is over, this instrument may, if it chooses, exercise one period rather than two.

In scanning this instrument’s physical complex distortions we find the current period of exercise at the limit of this instrument’s strength.

This is well in the long run due to a cumulative building up of the vital energies.

In the short run it is wearying to this entity.

Thus we suggest the entity be aware of our previous admonitions regarding other aids to appropriate bodily distortions.

In answer to the second query we may say that the physical complex difficulties prior to contact with our social memory complex are due to the action of the subconscious will of the instrument.

This will is extremely strong and requires the mind/body/spirit complex to reserve all available physical and vital energies for the contact.

Thus the discomforts are experienced due to the dramatic distortion towards physical weakness while this energy is diverted.

The entity is, it may be noted, also under psychic attack, and this intensifies pre-existing conditions and is responsible for the cramping and the dizziness as well as mind complex distortions.

Questioner: Thank you.

I would like to know if (name) may attend one of these sessions in the very near future?


Ra: I am Ra. The mind/body/spirit complex, (name), belongs with this group in the spirit and is welcome.

You may request that special meditative periods be set aside until the entity sits with this working.

We might suggest that a photograph of the one known as (name) be sent to this entity with his writing upon it indicating love and light.

This held while meditating will bring the entity into peaceful harmony with each of you so that there be no extraneous waste of energy while greetings are exchanged between two entities, both of whom have a distortion towards solitude and shyness, as you would call it.

The same might be done with a photograph of the entity, (name), for the one known as (name).

Questioner: Can you tell me why (name) has so many silver flecks on her?

Ra: I am Ra. This is infringement

No.

Questioner: Thank you. 

Can you tell me why I got sick during Carl Rushkey’s talk?

Ra: I am Ra. We scan your thoughts

They are correct and therefore we do not infringe by confirming them

The space/time of your allotted speaking was drawing near and you came under Orion attack due to the great desire of some positively oriented entities to become aware of the Law of One.

This may be expected especially when you are not in a group lending strength to each other.

Questioner: Thank you.

Can you comment on my and the instrument’s, if she approves, so-called ball of lightening experiences as a child?


Ra: I am Ra. This will be the last query of this working.

You were being visited by your people to be wished well.

The Law of One, Book III, Session 57

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. 

We communicate now.

Questioner: First, could you give me an indication of the instrument’s condition, please?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument is under a most severe psychic attack

This instrument is bearing up well due to replenished vital energies and a distortion towards a sense of proportion which your peoples call a sense of humor.

This attack is potentially disruptive to this contact for a brief period of your space/time.

Questioner: Is there anything in particular that we can do in addition to what we are doing to alleviate this attack?

Ra: I am Ra. There is nothing you can do to alleviate the attack

The understanding of its mechanism might be of aid.

Questioner: Could you tell us its mechanism?

Ra: I am Ra. The Orion group cannot interfere directly but only through preexisting distortions of mind/body/spirit complexes.

Thus in this case, this entity reached for an heavy object with one hand and this miscalculated action caused a deformation or distortion of the skeletal/muscular structure of one of this instrument’s appendages.

Your aid may be helpful in supporting this instrument in the proper care of this distortion which is equivalent to what you call your post-operative state when bones are not firmly knit. 

This instrument needs to be aware of care necessary to avoid such miscalculated actions and your support in this state of awareness is noted and encouraged.

Questioner: Is there anything that we can specifically do to alleviate this problem that is already existing?

Ra: I am Ra. This information is harmless, thus we share it though it is transient, lacking the principle but only offering a specific transient effect.

The wrist area should be wrapped as in the sprained configuration, as you call this distortion, and what you call a sling may be used on this distorted right side of the body complex for one diurnal period. 

At that time symptoms, as you call these distortions, shall be reviewed and such repeated until the distortion is alleviated.

The healing work to which each is apprentice may be used as desired.

It is to be noted that a crystal is available.

Questioner: Which crystal is that?

Ra: I am Ra. The flawed but sufficient crystal which rests upon the digit of this instrument’s right hand.

Questioner: Would you tell me how to use that crystal for this purpose?

Ra: I am Ra. This is a large question.

The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 34
Session 60, July 1, 1981

Questioner: It is my opinion that the best way for the instrument to improve her condition is through periods of meditation followed by periods of contemplation with respect to the condition and its improvement.

Could you tell me if I am correct and expand on this?


Ra: I am Ra. Meditation and contemplation are never untoward activities.

However, this activity will in all probability, in our opinion, not significantly alter the predispositions of this instrument which cause the fundamental distortions which we, as well as you, have found disconcerting.

Questioner: Can you tell me the best approach for altering, to a more acceptable condition, the distortions that the instrument is experiencing?

Ra: I am Ra. There is some small amount of work which the instrument may do concerning its pre-incarnative decisions regarding service to the infinite Creator in this experience.

However, the decision to open without reservation to the offering of self when service is perceived is such a fundamental choice that it is not open to significant alteration, nor would we wish to interfere with the balancing process which is taking place with this particular entity.

The wisdom and compassion being so balanced by this recapitulation of fourth density is helpful to this particular mind/body/spirit complex.

It is not an entity much given to quibbling with the purity with which it carries out that which it feels it is best to do.

We may say this due to the instrument’s knowledge of its self which is clear upon this point.

However, this very discussion may give rise to a slightly less fully unstopped dedication to service in any one working so that the service may be continued over a greater period of your space/time.

Questioner: You are saying, then, that the physical distortions that the instrument experiences are part of a balancing process? Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is incorrect.

The physical distortions are a result of the instrument’s not accepting fully the limitations placed prior to incarnation upon the activities of the entity once it had begun the working.

The distortions caused by this working, which are inevitable given the plan chosen by this entity, are limitation and to a degree, consonant with the amount of vital and physical energy expended, weariness, due to that which is the equivalent in this instrument of many, many hours of harsh physical labor.

This is why we suggested the instrument’s thoughts dwelling upon the possibility of its suggesting to its higher self the possibility of some slight reservation of energy at a working.

This instrument at this time is quite open until all resources are quite exhausted.

This is well if desired.

However, it will, shall we say, shorten the number of workings in what you may call the long run.

Questioner: Will spreading the workings out over greater intervals of time so that we have more time between workings help?

Ra: I am Ra. This you have already done.

It is not helpful to your group to become unbalanced by concern for one portion of the work above another.

If this instrument is, in your judgment, capable and if the support group is functioning well, if all is harmonious and if the questions to be asked have been considered well, the working is well begun.

To overly stress the condition of the instrument is as deleterious to the efficiency of this contact as the antithetical behavior was in your past.

Questioner: Aside from the workings I am concerned about the physical distortions of the instrument in the area of her hands and arms.

Is there a, shall we say, mental exercise or something else that the instrument could work on to help to alleviate the extreme problems that she has at this time with her hands, etc.?


Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

Questioner: Would this be an exercise of meditation and contemplation upon the alleviation of these problems?

Ra: I am Ra. No.

Questioner: What would she do then in order to alleviate these problems?

Ra: I am Ra. As we have said,

this instrument,
feeling that it lacked compassion to balance wisdom, chose an incarnative experience whereby it was of necessity placed in situations of accepting self in the absence of other-selves’ acceptance and the acceptance of other-self without expecting a return or energy transfer.

This is not an easy program for an incarnation but was deemed proper by this entity.

This entity therefore must needs meditate and consciously, moment by moment, accept the self in its limitations which have been placed for the very purpose of bringing this entity to the precise tuning we are using.

Further, having learned to radiate acceptance and love without expecting return, this entity now must balance this by learning to accept the gifts of love and acceptance of others which this instrument feels some discomfort in accepting.

These two balanced workings will aid this entity in the release from the distortion called pain.

The limitations are, to a great extent, fixed.

Questioner: Is the fact that the instrument was already consciously aware of this the reason that the first distortion was not in force in making it impossible for you to communicate this to us?

Ra: I am Ra. This is not only correct for this entity which has been consciously aware of these learn/teachings for some of your years, but also true of each of the support group.

The possibility of some of this information being offered was not there until this session.

The Law of One, Book III, Session 62

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

Before we begin may we request that a circle be walked about this instrument and that then each of the supporting group expel breath forcibly, approximately two and one-half feet above the instrument’s head, the circle then again being walked about the instrument.

(This was done as directed.)

Ra: I am Ra. We appreciate your kind cooperation

Please recheck the alignment of perpendicularity and we will begin.

(This was done as directed.)

Ra: I am Ra. We communicate now.

Questioner: Could you tell me what was wrong or what caused the necessity for the rewalking of the circle and the purpose for the expelling of the breath?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument was under specific psychic attack at the time of the beginning of the working

There was a slight irregularity in the words verbalized by your sound complex vibratory mechanisms in the protective walking of the circle

Into this opening came this entity and began to work upon the instrument now in trance state, as you would call it. 

This instrument was being quite adversely affected in physical complex distortions.

Thus the circle was properly walked. 

The breath of righteousness expelled the thought-form and the circle again was walked.

Questioner: What was the nature of the thought-form or its affiliation?

Ra: I am Ra. This thought-form was of Orion affiliation.

Questioner: Was the attack successful in creating any further distortion in the instrument’s physical complex?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: What is the nature of this distortion?

Ra: This thought-form sought to put an end to this instrument’s incarnation by working with the renal distortions which, although corrected upon time/space, are vulnerable to one which knows the way to separate time/space molding and space/time distortions which are being unmolded, vulnerable as before the, shall we say, healing.

Questioner: What detrimental effect has been done?

Ra: I am Ra. There will be some discomfort

However, we were fortunate in that this instrument was very open to us and well-tuned. 

Had we not been able to reach this instrument and instruct you, the instrument’s physical vehicle would soon be unviable.

Questioner: Will there be any lasting effect from this attack as far as the instrument’s physical vehicle is concerned?

Ra: I am Ra. This is difficult to say

We are of the opinion that no lasting harm or distortion will occur.

The healer was strong and the bonds taking effect in the remolding of these renal distortions were effective. 

It is at this point a question of two forms of the leavings of what you may call a spell or a magic working; the healer’s distortions versus the attempt at Orion distortions; the healer’s distortions full of love; the Orion distortions also pure in separation

It seems that all is well except for some possible discomfort which shall be attended if persistent.

Questioner: Was the opening that was made in the protective circle planned to be made by the Orion entity? 

Was it a specific planned attempt to make an opening, or was this just something that happened by accident?


Ra: I am Ra. This entity was, as your people put it, looking for a target of opportunity

The missed word was a chance occurrence and not a planned one.

We might suggest in the, shall we say, future, as you measure space/time, as you begin a working be aware that this instrument is likely being watched for any opportunity

Thus if the circle is walked with some imperfection it is well to immediately repeat

The expelling of breath is also appropriate, always to the left.

Questioner: Would you expand on what you just said on the expelling of the breath? 

I’m not quite sure of what you mean.


Ra: I am Ra. The repetition of that performed well at this working is advisable if the circle is walked in less than the appropriate configuration.

Questioner: But you mentioned the expelling of the breath to the left, I believe. 

Would you tell me what you meant by that?

Ra: I am Ra. It is as you have just accomplishedthe breath being sent above the instrument’s head from its right side to its left.

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do for the instrument after she comes out of the trance to help her recover from this attack?

Ra: I am Ra. There is little to be done

You may watch to see if distortions persist and see that the appropriate healers are brought into contact with this mind/body/spirit complex in the event that difficulty persists. 

It may not

This battle is even now being accomplished. 

Each may counsel the instrument to continue its work as outlined previously.

Questioner: Who would the appropriate healers be, and how would we bring them in contact with the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. There are four

The difficulty being at all noticed as bodily distortion, the one known as (name of spiritual healer) and 
the one known as (name of spiritual healer) may work upon the instrument’s bodily complex by means of the practices which are developing in each entity. 
Given persistence of distortion, the one known as (name of allopathic healer) shall be seen. 
Given the continued difficulty past the point of one of your cycles called the fortnight, the one known as (name of allopathic healer) shall be seen.

Questioner: Does the instrument know who these people are, (name) and (name)? 

I don’t know who they are?


Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: Is that the sum total of what we can do to aid the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. 

We may note that the harmonies and loving social intercourse which prevails habitually in this group create a favorable environment for each of you to do your work.

Questioner: What priority, shall I say, does the Orion group place on the reduction of effectiveness or elimination of effectiveness of this group with respect to activities on planet Earth at this time? 

Can you tell me that?


Ra: I am Ra. This group, as all positive channels and supporting groups, is a greatly high priority with the Orion group

This instrument’s bodily distortions are its most easily unbound or unloosed distortion dissolving the mind/body/spirit complex if the Orion group is successful; this particular group, having learned to be without serious chinks, may we say, in mind and spirit complex vibratory patterns

In other channels other chinks may be more in evidence.

Questioner: Is there something that the instrument could do or we could do for the instrument to eliminate the problems that she has, that she continually experiences of the cold feeling of these attacks?

Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

Questioner: Would you tell me what we could do?

Ra: I am Ra. You could cease in your attempts to be channels for the love and the light of the one infinite Creator.

Questioner: Have I missed anything now that we can do at all to aid the instrument during, before, or after a session or at any time?

Ra: I am Ra. The love and devotion of this group misses nothing.

Be at peace.

There is some toll for this work.

This instrument embraces this or we could not speak.

Rest then in that peace and love and do as you will, as you wish, as you feel.

Let there be an end to worry when this is accomplished.

The great healer of distortions is love.

The Law of One, Book III, Session 63

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Could you give me an indication of the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument’s vital energies are at the distortion which is normal for this mind/body/spirit complex.

The body complex is distorted due to psychic attack in the area of the kidneys and urinary tract.

There is also distortion continuing due to the distortion called arthritis.

You may expect this psychic attack to be constant as this instrument has been under observation by negatively oriented force for some time.

Questioner: Was the original problem with the kidneys some 25 years ago caused by psychic attack?

Ra: I am Ra. This is only partially correct.

There were psychic attack components to the death of this body at that space/time.

However, the guiding vibratory complex in this event was the will of the instrument.

This instrument desired to leave this plane of existence as it did not feel it could be of service.

Questioner: You are saying then that the instrument itself created the kidney problem at that time?

Ra: I am Ra. The instrument’s desire to leave this density lowered the defenses of an already predisposed weak body complex, and an allergic reaction was so intensified as to cause the complications which distorted the body complex towards unviability.

The will of the instrument, when it found that there was indeed work to be done in service, was again the guiding factor or complex of vibratory patterns which kept the body complex from surrendering to dissolution of the ties which cause the vitality of life.

Questioner: Is the necessity of the instrument to go to the bathroom several times before a session due to the psychic attack?

Ra: I am Ra. In general this is incorrect.

The instrument is eliminating from the body complex the distortion leavings of the material which we use for contact.

This occurs variably, sometimes beginning before contact, other workings this occurring after the contact.

In this particular working this entity is experiencing the aforementioned difficulties causing the intensification of that particular distortion/condition.

Questioner: I know that you have already answered this question, but I feel it my duty now to ask it each time in case there is some new development, and that is, is there anything that we can do that we aren’t doing to lessen the effectiveness of the psychic attack upon the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. Continue in love and praise and thanksgiving to the Creator.

Examine previous material.

Love is the great protector.

The Law of One, Book III, Session 64

Questioner: Can you tell me why the slight error made in the ritual starting this communication two sessions ago allowed the intrusion by an Orion affiliated entity?

Ra: I am Ra. This contact is narrow band and its preconditions precise

The other-self offering its service in the negative path also is possessed of the skill of the swordsman. 

You deal in this contact with, shall we say, forces of great intensity poured into a vessel as delicate as a snowflake and as crystalline.

The smallest of lapses may disturb the regularity of this pattern of energies which forms the channel for these transmissions.

We may note for your information that our pause was due to the necessity of being quite sure that the mind/body/spirit complex of the instrument was safely in the proper light configuration or density before we dealt with the situation. 

Far better would it be to allow the shell to become unviable than to allow the mind/body/spirit complex to be shall we say, misplaced.

The Law of One, Book III, Session 65

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Could you first please give us an indication of the instrument’s condition and the level of vital and physical energies?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument’s vital energies are as previously stated.

The physical energies are greatly distorted towards weakness at this space/time due to the distortion complexes symptomatic of that which you call the arthritic condition.

The level of psychic attack is constant but is being dealt with by this instrument in such a way as to eliminate serious difficulties due to its fidelity and that of the support group.

Questioner: I noticed that you are speaking more slowly than usual. Is there a reason for this?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument is somewhat weak and although strong in vital energy and well able to function at this time is somewhat more fragile than the usual condition we find.

We may note a continuing bearing of the physical distortion called pain which has a weakening effect upon physical energy.

In order to use the considerable store of available energy without harming the instrument we are attempting to channel even more narrow band than is our wont.

The Law of One, Book III, Session 67

Ra: I am Ra and I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

I communicate now.

Questioner: Could you first give us the instrument’s condition, please?

Ra: I am Ra. The vital energies are more closely aligned with the amount of distortion normal to this entity than previous asking showed.

The physical complex energy levels are somewhat less strong than at the previous asking.

The psychic attack component is exceptionally strong at this particular nexus.

Questioner: Can you describe what you call the psychic attack component and tell me why it is strong at this particular time?

Ra: I am Ra. We shall elect not to retrace previously given information but rather elect to note that the psychic attack upon this instrument is at a constant level as long as it continues in this particular service.

Variations towards the distortion of intensity of attack occur due to the opportunities presented by the entity in any weakness.

At this particular nexus the entity has been dealing with the distortion which you call pain for some time, as you call this measurement, and this has a cumulatively weakening effect upon physical energy levels.

This creates a particularly favorable target of opportunity, and the entity of which we have previously spoken has taken this opportunity to attempt to be of service in its own way.

It is fortunate for the on-going vitality of this contact that the instrument is a strong-willed entity with little tendency towards the distortion, called among your peoples, hysteria, since the dizzying effects of this attack have been constant and at times disruptive for several of your diurnal periods.

However, this particular entity is adapting well to the situation without undue distortions towards fear.

Thus the psychic attack is not successful but does have some draining influence upon the instrument.

Questioner: Thank you. 

Is this so-called attack offered to myself and (name) as well as the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct

Questioner: I personally have felt no effect that I am aware of. 

Is it possible for you to tell me how we are offered this service?


Ra: I am Ra. 

The questioner 
has been offered the service of doubting the self and of becoming disheartened over various distortions of the personal nature


This entity has not chosen to use these opportunities and the Orion entity has basically ceased to be interested in maintaining constant surveillance of this entity.

The scribe 
is under constant surveillance and has been offered numerous opportunities for the intensification of the mental/emotional distortions and in some cases the connection matrices between mental/emotional complexes and the physical complex counterpart. 

As this entity has become aware of these attacks it has become much less pervious to them

This is the particular cause of the great intensification and constancy of the surveillance of the instrumentfor it is the weak link due to factors beyond its control within this incarnation.

Questioner: Is it within the first distortion to tell me why the instrument experienced so many physical distortions during the new times of its physical incarnation?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: In that case can you answer me as to why the instrument experienced so much during its early years?

Ra: I am Ra. We were affirming the correctness of your assumption that such answers would be breaking the Way of Confusion. 

It is not appropriate for such answers to be laid out as a table spread for dinner

It is appropriate that the complexes of opportunity involved be contemplated.

The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 39
Session 68, August 18, 1981


Questioner: Could you first please give me an indication of the instrument’s condition?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument’s physical energies are depleted completely.

The remainder is as previously stated.

Questioner: With the physical energies completely depleted should I continue with the session?

I’m not sure exactly what that means?


Ra: I am Ra. We have available transferred energy which is due to the service offered by two of this group and, therefore, we are able to continue.

Were it not for this transferred energy, the instrument whose will is strong would have depleted its vital energies by willing the available resources.

Thus if there is no transfer of energy, and if the instrument seems depleted to the extent it now is, it is well to refrain from using the instrument.

If there is energy transferred, this service may be accepted without damage to the distortion of normal vital energy.

We may note that the physical energy has been exhausted, not due to the distortion toward pain, although this is great at this space/time, but primarily due to the cumulative effects of continual experience of this distortion.

Questioner: Would you recommend a greater rest period between the end of this work period and the next work period?

Would that help the instrument?


Ra: I am Ra. We might suggest, as always, that the support group watch the instrument with care and make the decision based upon observation.

It is not within our capacity to specifically recommend a future decision.

We would note that our previous recommendation of one working on alternate diurnal periods did not take into account the fragility of the instrument and thus we would ask your forgiveness for this suggestion.

At this nexus our distortion is towards a flexible scheduling of workings based upon, as we said, the support group’s decisions concerning the instrument.

We would again note that there is a fine line between the care of the instrument for continued use which we find acceptable and the proper understanding, if you will excuse this misnomer, of the entire group’s need to work in service.

Thus if the instrument’s condition is truly marginal, by all means let more rest occur between workings.

However, if there is desire for the working and the instrument is at all able in your careful opinion, it is, shall we say, a well done action for this group to work.

We cannot be more precise, for this contact is a function of your free will.

The Law of One, Book III, Session 70

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Could you please give me an indication of the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. We are gratified to say that it is as previously stated.

Questioner: Why do you say that you are gratified to say that?

Ra: I am Ra. We say this due to a sense of gratitude at the elements which have enabled this instrument to maintain, against great odds, its vital energy at normal vibratory strength.

As long as this complex of energies is satisfactory we may use this instrument without depletion regardless of the distortions previously mentioned.

Questioner: The instrument has complained of intensive psychic attack for the past diurnal period, approximately.

Is there a reason for the intensification of this psychic attack?


Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

Questioner: Can you tell me what this reason is, please?

Ra: I am Ra. The cause is that with which you are intimately involved, that is, the cause is the intensive seeking for what you may call enlightenment.

This seeking upon your parts has not abated, but intensified.

In the general case, pain, as you call this distortion and the various exaggerations of this distortion by psychic attack would, after the depletion of physical complex energy, begin the depletion of vital energy.

This instrument guards its vital energy due to previous errors upon its part.

Its subconscious will, which is preternaturally strong for this density, has put a ward upon this energy complex.

Thus the Orion visitor strives with more and more intensity to disturb this vital energy as this group intensifies its dedication to service through enlightenment.

The Law of One, Book III, Session 71

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Could you first please give me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. It is as previously stated with the exception of a slight improvement in the vital energy distortions.

One may note to the support group, without infringement, that it is well to aid the instrument in the reminders that while physical complex distortions remain as they are it is not advisable to use the increased vital energies for physical complex activities as this will take a somewhat harsh toll.

The Law of One, Book III, Session 72

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Could you first give me an indication of the instrument’s condition?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument’s physical energy distortions are as previously stated.

The vital energy level has become distorted from normal levels, somewhat downward, due to the distortion in this instrument’s mind complex activity that it has been responsible for the, shall we say, difficulties in achieving the appropriate configuration for this contact.

Questioner: Was the banishing ritual that we performed of any effect in purifying the place of working and the screening of influences that we do not wish?

Ra: I am Ra. This is quite correct.

Questioner: Can you tell me what I can do to improve the effectiveness of the ritual?

Ra: I am Ra. No.

Questioner: Can you tell me what caused the instrument to become in a condition toward unconsciousness in the last two meditations prior to this one to such an extent that we discontinued them?

Ra: I am Ra. We can.

Questioner: Would you please tell me then?

Ra: I am Ra. The entity which greets this instrument from the Orion group first attempted to cause the mind/body/spirit complex, which you may call spirit, to leave the physical complex of yellow-ray in the deluded belief that it was preparing for the Ra contact.

You are familiar with this tactic and its consequences.

The instrument, with no pause, upon feeling this greeting, called for the grounding within the physical complex by requesting that the hand be held.

Thus the greatest aim of the Orion entity was not achieved.

However, it discovered that those present were not capable of distinguishing between unconsciousness with the mind/body/spirit intact and the trance state in which the mind/body/spirit complex is not present.

Therefore, it applied to the fullest extent the greeting which causes the dizziness and in meditation without protection caused, in this instrument, simple unconsciousness as in what you would call fainting or vertigo.

The Orion entity consequently used this tactic to stop the Ra contact from having the opportunity to be accomplished.

Questioner: The instrument has scheduled an operation on her hand next month.

If the general anesthetic is used to produce the unconscious state will this or any other parameters of the operation allow for any inroads by the Orion entities?


Ra: I am Ra. It is extremely improbable due to the necessity for the intention of the mind/body/spirit complex, when departing the yellow-ray physical complex, to be serving the Creator in the most specific fashion.

The attitude of one approaching such an experience as you describe would not be approaching the unconscious state with such an attitude.

Questioner: We have here, I believe, a very important principle with respect to the Law of One.

You have stated that the attitude of the individual is of paramount importance for the Orion entity to be able to be effective.


Would you please explain how this mechanism works with respect to the Law of One and why the attitude of the entity is of paramount importance and why this allows for action by the Orion entity?

Ra: I am Ra. The Law of Confusion or Free Will is utterly paramount in the workings of the infinite creation.

That which is intended has as much intensity of attraction to the polar opposite as the intensity of the intention or desire.

Thus those whose desires are shallow or transitory experience only ephemeral configurations of what might be called the magical circumstance.

There is a turning point, a fulcrum which swings as a mind/body/spirit complex tunes its will to service.

If this will and desire is for service-to-others the corresponding polarity will be activated.

In the circumstance of this group there are three such wills acting as one with the instrument in the, shall we say, central position of fidelity to service.

This is as it must be for the balance of the working and the continuance of the contact.

Our vibratory complex is one-pointed in these workings also and our will to serve is also of some degree of purity.

This has created the attraction of the polar opposite which you experience.

We may note that such a configuration of free will, one-pointed in service-to-others, also has the potential for the alerting of a great mass of light strength.

This positive light strength, however, operates also under free will and must be invoked.

We could not speak to this and shall not guide you, for the nature of this contact is such that the purity of your free will must, above all things, be preserved.

Thus you wend your way through experiences discovering those biases which may be helpful.

Questioner: The negatively oriented entities who contact us and others on this planet are limited by the first distortion.

They have obviously been limited by the banishing ritual just performed.

Could you describe, with respect to free will, how they limit themselves in order to work within the first distortion and how the banishing ritual itself works?


Ra: I am Ra. This query has several portions.

Firstly,
those of negative polarity do not operate with respect to free will unless it is necessary.
They call themselves and will infringe whenever they feel it possible.

Secondly,
they are limited by the great Law of Confusion in that, for the most part, they are unable to enter this planetary sphere of influence and are able to use the windows of time/space distortion only in so far as there is some calling to balance the positive calling.

Once they are here, their desire is conquest
.

Thirdly,
in the instance of this instrument’s being removed permanently from this space/time, it is necessary to allow the instrument to leave its yellow-ray physical complex of its free will.

Thus trickery has been attempted
.

The use of the light forms being generated is such as to cause such entities to discover a wall through which they can not pass.

This is due to the energy complexes of the light beings and aspects of the one infinite Creator invoked and evoked in the building of the wall of light.

Questioner: In the last session you mentioned that if the instrument used any of the increased vital energy that she experiences for physical activity that she would pay a “harsh toll.” 

Could you tell me the nature of that harsh toll and why it would be experienced?


Ra: I am Ra. 

The physical energy level 
is a measure of the amount of available energy of the body complex of a mind/body/spirit complex. 

The vital energy measurement 
is one which expresses the amount of energy of being of the mind/body/spirit complex.

This entity has great distortions in the direction of mind complex activity, spirit complex activity, and that great conduit to the Creator, the will

Therefore, this instrument’s vital energy, even in the absence of any physical reserve measurable, is quite substantial. 

However, the use of this energy of will, mind, and spirit for the things of the physical complex causes a far greater distortion in the lessening of the vital energy than would the use of this energy for those things which are in the deepest desires and will of the mind/body/spirit complex. 

In this entity these desires are for service to the Creator. 

This entity sees all service as service to the Creator and this is why we have cautioned the support group and the instrument itself in this regard. 

All services are not equal in depth of distortion

The over-use of this vital energy is, to be literal, the rapid removal of life-force.

Questioner: You mentioned that the large amount of light that is available.

Could this group, by proper ritual, use this for recharging the vital energy of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct

However, we caution against any working which raises up any personality; rather it is well to be fastidious in your working.

Questioner: Could you explain what you mean by “raises up any personality”?

Ra: I am Ra. Clues, we may offer

Explanation is infringement

We can only ask that you realize that all are One.

Questioner: We have included “Shin” in the banishing ritual, ”Yod-Heh-Vau-Heh” to make it ”Yod-Heh-Shin-Vau-Heh.” 

Is this helpful?

Ra: I am Ra. This is helpful especially to the instrument whose distortions vibrate greatly in congruency with this sound vibration complex.

Questioner: We will in the future have group meditations. 

I am concerned about protection for the instrument if she is once more a channel in these meditations. 

Is there an optimum time or limiting amount of time for the banishing ritual to be effective, or 
if we continued daily to purify the place of working with the banishing ritual would this carry over for long periods of time, 
or must the ritual be done immediately prior to the meditations?


Ra: I am Ra. Your former assumption is more nearly correct.

Questioner: Is there any danger now, with the precautions that we are taking, of the instrument being led away by the Orion entity?

Ra: I am Ra. The opportunities for the Orion entity are completely dependent upon the instrument’s condition of awareness and readiness

We would suggest that this instrument is still too much the neophyte to open its self to questions since that is the format used by Ra

As the instrument grows in awareness this precaution may become unnecessary.

Questioner: Why is there no protection at the floor or bottom of the banishing ritual, and should there be?

Ra: I am Ra. This will be the last full query of this working.

The development of the psychic greeting is possible only through the energy centers starting from a station which you might call within the violet-ray moving through the adept’s energy center and therefrom towards the target of opportunity

Depending upon the vibratory nature and purpose of greeting, be it positive or negative, the entity will be energized or blocked in the desired way.

We of Ra approach this instrument in narrow band contact through violet-ray

Others might pierce down through this ray to any energy center

We, for instance
make great use of this instrument’s blue-ray energy center as we are attempting to communicate our distortion/understandings of the Law of One.

The entity of Orion 
pierces the same violet-ray and moves to two places to attempt most of its non-physical opportunities

It activates the green-ray energy center while further blocking indigo-ray energy center

This combination causes confusion in the instrument and subsequent overactivity in unwise proportions in physical complex workings

It simply seeks out the distortions preincarnatively programmed and developed in incarnative state.

The energies of life itself
being the one infinite Creatorflow from the south pole of the body seen in its magnetic form

Thus only the Creator may
through the feet, enter the energy shell of the body to any effect

The effects of the adept are those from the upper direction and thus the building of the wall of light is quite propitious.

May we ask if there are any shorter queries at this time?

The Law of One, Book III, Session 74

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Would you first please give me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. It is as previously stated.

Questioner: Before we get to new material, in the last session there seems to be a small error that I corrected then having to do with this statement, “no working comes from it but only through it.”

Was this an error in the transmission?

What caused this?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument, while fully open to our narrow-band contact, at times experiences a sudden strengthening of the distortion which you call pain.

This weakens the contact momentarily.

This type of increased distortion has been occurring in this instrument’s bodily complex with more frequency in the time period which you may term the previous fortnight.

Although it is not normally a phenomenon which causes difficulties in transmission, it did so twice in the previous working.

Both times it was necessary to correct or rectify the contact.

Questioner: Could you please describe the trance state? 

I am somewhat confused as to how, in a trance, pain can affect the instrument since I was of the opinion that there would be no feeling of pain by the bodily complex in the trance state?


Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. 

The instrument has no awareness of this or other sensations

However, we of Ra use the yellow-ray activated physical complex as a channel through which to speak

As the mind/body/spirit complex of the instrument leaves this physical shell in our keeping it is finely adjusted to our contact.

However, the distortion which you call pain, when sufficiently severe, mitigates against proper contact and, when the increased distortion is violent, can cause the tuning of the channel to waver

This tuning must then be corrected which we may do as the instrument offers us this opportunity freely.

Questioner: The instrument would like to know why twice during the “Benedictus” portion of the music she sang in a group concert that she experienced what she believes to be a psychic attack?

Ra: I am Ra. This is not a minor query.2 

We shall first remove the notations which are minor

In the vibrating, which you call singing, of the portion of what this instrument hallows as the Mass which immediately precedes that which is the chink called the “Hosanna” there is an amount of physical exertion required that is exhausting to any entity

This portion of which we speak is termed the “Sanctus.” 

We come now to the matter of interest

When the entity Jehoshuah3 decided to return to the location called Jerusalem for the holy days of its people it turned from work mixing love and wisdom and embraced martyrdom which is the work of love without wisdom.

The “Hosanna,” as it is termed, and the following ”Benedictus,” is that which is the written summation of what was shouted as Jehoshuah came into the place of its martyrdom. 

The general acceptance of this shout,

Hosanna to the son of David! Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” 

by that which is called the church has been a misstatement, an occurrence which has been, perhaps, unfortunate for it is more distorted than much of the so-called Mass.

There were two factions present to greet Jehoshuah

firstly
a small group of those which hoped for an earthly king

However, Jehoshuah rode upon an ass stating by its very demeanor that it was no earthly king and wished no fight with Roman or Sadducee.

The greater number were those which had been instructed by rabbi and elder to make jest of this entity
for those of the hierarchy feared this entity who seemed to be one of them, giving respect to their laws and then, in their eyes, betraying those time-honored laws and taking the people with it.

The chink for this instrument is this subtle situation which echoes down through your space/time and, more than this, the place the Hosanna” holds as the harbinger of that turning to martyrdom

We may speak only generally here

The instrument did not experience the full force of the greeting which it correctly identified during the “Hosanna” due to the intense concentration necessary to vibrate its portion of that composition.

However, the “Benedictus” in this particular rendition of these words is vibrated by one entity

Thus the instrument relaxed its concentration and was immediately open to the fuller greeting.

Questioner: The chink then, as I understand it, was originally created by the decision of Jesus to take the path of martyrdom? Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is, in relation to this instrument, quite correct. 

It is aware of certain over-balances towards love, even to martyrdom but has not yet, to any significant degree, balanced these distortions. 

We do not imply that this course of unbridled compassion has any fault but affirm its perfection

It is an example of love which has served as beacon to many.

For those who seek further,
the consequences of martyrdom must be considered, for in martyrdom lies the end of the opportunity, in the density of the martyr, to offer love and light

Each entity must seek its deepest path.

2 It may seem that there is an excessive amount of personal and rather melodramatic material about psychic attack included here. We considered long and hard before deciding not to delete it. 

Our reason—Ra seems to suggest that any “light worker” will, if successful in this work, attract some sort of negatively oriented greeting.

Therefore, we wish to share our experiences and Ra’s discussion of them, in hopes that the information might be helpful.

3 Ra has previously identified this name as the name of Jesus in biblical times.

The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 41
Session 75, October 31, 1981

Questioner: I felt that this session was advisable before the instrument has her hospital experience.

She wished to ask a few questions, if possible, about that.


First, is there anything that the instrument or we might do to improve the hospital experience or to aid the instrument in any way with respect to this?

Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

There are ways of aiding the mental/emotional state of this entity with the notation that this is so only for this entity or one of like distortions.

There is also a general thing which may be accomplished to improve the location which is called the hospital.

The first aiding has to do with the vibration of the ritual with which this entity is most familiar and which this entity has long used to distort its perception of the one infinite Creator.

This is an helpful thing at any point in the diurnal period but is especially helpful as your sun body removes itself from your local sight.

The general improvement of the place where the performance of the ritual of the purification is to be performed is known.

We may note that the distortion towards love, as you call this spiritual/emotional complex which is felt by each for this entity, will be of aid whether this is expressed or unmanifest as there is no protection greater than love.

Questioner: Do you mean that it would be valuable to perform the Banishing Ritual of the Lesser Pentagram in the room in which she will be occupying in the hospital?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: I was wondering about the operating room.

That might be very difficult.

Would it be helpful there?


Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

We may note that it is always helpful.

Therefore, it is not easy to posit a query to which you would not receive the answer which we offer.

This does not indicate that it is essential to purify a place.

The power of visualization may aid in your support where you cannot intrude in your physical form.

Questioner: I see the way to do this as a visualization of the operating room and a visualization of the three of us performing the banishing ritual in the room as we perform it at another location.

Is this the correct procedure?


Ra: I am Ra. This is one correct method of achieving your desired configuration.

Questioner: Is there a better method than that?

Ra: I am Ra. There are better methods for those more practiced.

For this group, this method is well.

Questioner: I would assume those more practiced would leave their physical bodies and, in the other body, enter the room and practice the ritual.

Is this what you mean?


Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: The instrument would like to know if she can meditate in the hospital without someone holding her hand. Would this be a safe practice?

Ra: I am Ra. We might suggest that the instrument may pray with safety but only meditate with another entity’s tactile protection.

Questioner: The instrument would like to know what she can do to improve the condition of her back as she feels it will be a problem for the operation?

Ra: I am Ra. As we scan the physical complex we find several factors contributing to one general distortion experienced by the instrument.

Two of these distortions have been diagnosed; one has not; nor will the entity be willing to accept the chemicals sufficient to cause cessation of this distortion you call pain.

In general we may say that the sole modality addressing itself specifically to all three contributing distortions, which is not now being used, is that of the warmed water which is moved with gentle force repeatedly against the entire physical complex while the physical vehicle is seated.

This would be of some aid if practiced daily after the exercise period.

Questioner: Did the exercise of the fire performed before the session help the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. There was some slight physical aid to the instrument.

This will enlarge itself as the practitioner learns/teaches its healing art.

Further, there is distortion in the mental/emotional complex which feeds the vital energy towards comfort due to support which tends to build up the level of vital energy as this entity is a sensitive instrument.

Questioner: Let me see, then, if I understand how the Orion entity finds a chink in this distortion. 

The entity identifying in any amount toward martyrdom is then open by its free will to the aid of the Orion group to make it a martyr. Am I correct?


Ra: I am Ra. You are correct only in the quite specialized position in which the instrument finds itself, that is, of being involved in and dedicated to work which is magical or extremely polarized in nature

This group entered this work with polarity but virtual innocence as to the magical nature of this polarity

That it is beginning to discover.

Questioner: How was the Orion entity able to act through this linkage of the “Hosanna”? 

Was this simply because of mental distortions of the instrument at this period of time, because of that suggested by the music, or was it a more physical or metaphysical link from the time of Christ?

Ra: I am Ra. 

Firstly, the latter supposition is false

This entity is not linked with the entity, Jehoshuah

Secondly, there is a most unique circumstance.

There is an entity which has attracted the attention of an Orion light being.

This is extremely rare.

This entity has an intense devotion to the teachings and example of the one it calls Jesus. 

This entity then vibrates in song a most demanding version, called The Mass in B Minor by Bach, of this exemplary votive complex of sound vibrations. 

The entity is consciously identifying with each part of this Mass. 

Only thusly was the chink made available. 

As you can see, it is not an ordinary occurrence and would not have happened had any ingredient been left out: exhaustion, bias in the belief complexes, attention from an Orion entity, and the metaphysical nature of that particular set of words.

Questioner: What was the Orion entity’s objective with respect to the entity you spoke of who, in a demanding manner, sings the Mass?

Ra: I am Ra. The Orion entity wishes to remove the instrument.

Questioner: Is this a fourth- or a fifth-density?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument is being greeted by a fifth-density entity which has lost some polarity due to its lack of dictatorship over the disposition of the instrument’s mind/body/spirit or its yellow-ray activated physical complex.

Questioner: You are speaking of this other person now who sang in the Mass? Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. No.

Questioner: I think there was a little miscommunication here. 

I was asking about the other person who sings the Mass in creating this chink that was also greeted by an Orion entity, and my question was what density is the Orion entity who greets the other person who sings the Mass?


Ra: I am Ra. We did not speak of any entity but the instrument.

Questioner: OK. I misunderstood. 

I thought you were speaking of someone else in the singing group who had been identified with the singing. 


The entire time we were speaking we were speaking only of the instrument? Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: I am sorry for my confusion. 

Sometimes, as you say, sound vibration complexes are not very adequate
.

Questioner: Was the exercise of the fire properly done?

Ra: I am Ra. The baton is well visualized.

The conductor will learn to hear the entire score of the great music of its art.

Questioner: I assume that if this can be fully accomplished that exercise will result in total healing of the distortions of the instrument to such an extent that operations would be unnecessary. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. No.

Questioner: What else is necessary, the instrument’s acceptance?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

The case with this instrument being delicate since it must totally accept much which the limitations it now experiences cause to occur involuntarily.

This is a pre-incarnative choice.

Questioner: You probably can’t answer this, but are there any suggestions that you could give with respect to the instrument’s coming hospital experience that could be of benefit for her?

Ra: I am Ra. We may make one suggestion and leave the remainder with the Creator.

It is well for each to realize its self as the Creator.

Thusly each may support each including the support of self by humble love of self as Creator.

Questioner: Is the exercise of the fire best for the instrument, or is there anything better that we could do other than the things that you have already suggested to aid the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. Continue as you are at present.

We cannot speak of the future as we may then affect it, but there is a great probability/possibility if you follow the path which you now tread that more efficacious methods for the entire group will be established.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 76

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Could you first please give me an indication of the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument is in a state of physical complex bankruptcy which has existed for some of the measure you call time.

The vital energies are normal with a strong spiritual complex counterpart and will lending substance to the mind/body/spirit complex energy levels.

Questioner: Will our continued communication with Ra be deleterious to the physical energies of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. We may answer in two modes.

Firstly, if the instrument were thusly dedicated to this use with no transfer of energy of physical complex nature it would begin to call upon the vital energy itself and this, done in any substantive measure, is actively deleterious to a mind/body/spirit complex if that complex wishes further experience in the illusion which it now distorts.

Secondly, if care is taken, firstly, to monitor the outer parameters of the instrument, then to transfer physical energy by sexual transfer, by magical protection, and, lastly, by the energetic displacements of thought-forms energizing the instrument during contact there is no difficulty in that there is no worsening of the instrument’s mind/body/spirit complex distortions of strength/weakness.

It is to be noted that the instrument, by dedicating itself to this service, attracts greetings of which you are aware.

These are inconvenient but, with care taken, need not be lastingly deleterious either to the instrument or the contact.

Questioner: Of the three things that you mentioned that we could do for the instrument’s benefit, would you clarify the last one?

I didn’t quite understand what you meant.


Ra: I am Ra. As the entity which you are allows its being to empathize with any other being, so then it may choose to share with the other-self those energies which may be salubrious to the other-self.

The mechanism of these energy transfers is the thought or, more precisely, the thought-form for any thought is a form or symbol or thing that is an object seen in time/space reference.

Questioner: Has our use of the Banishing Ritual of the Lesser Pentagram been of any value and what is its effect?

Ra: I am Ra. This group’s use of the Banishing Ritual of the Lesser Pentagram has been increasingly efficacious.

Its effect is purification, cleansing, and protection of the place of working.

The efficacy of this ritual is only beginning to be, shall we say, at the lower limits of the truly magical.

In doing the working those aspiring to adepthood have done the equivalent of beginning the schoolwork, many grades ahead.

For the intelligent student this is not to be discouraged; rather to be encouraged is the homework, the reading, the writing, the arithmetic, as you might metaphorically call the elementary steps towards the study of being.

It is the being that informs the working, not the working that informs the being.

Therefore, we may leave you to the work you have begun.

Questioner: Would it be beneficial for us to perform the banishing ritual more in this room?

Ra: I am Ra. It is beneficial to regularly work in this place.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 77

Questioner: Was the instrument under attack just prior to this session?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: Is there anything that we could do to help protect the instrument from these attacks prior to the session?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: What could we do?

Ra: I am Ra. Your group could refrain from continuing this contact.

Questioner: Is that the only thing that we could do?

Ra: I am Ra. That is the only thing you could do which you are not already attempting with a whole heart.

Questioner: I have three questions that the instrument asked me to ask which I will get out of the way first.

She wants to know if the preparation for her hospital experience could be improved if she should ever have to repeat it?


Ra: I am Ra. All was done well with one exception.

The instrument was instructed to spend space/time contemplating its self as the Creator.

This, done in a more determined fashion, would be beneficial at times when the mind complex is weakened by severe assaults upon the distortions of the body complex towards pain.

There is no necessity for negative thought-forms regardless of pain distortions.

The elimination of such creates the lack of possibility for negative elementals and other negative entities to use these thought-forms to create the worsening of the mind complex deviation from the normal distortions of cheerfulness/anxiety.

Questioner: The instrument would also like to know if what we call tuning could be improved during times when we do not communicate with Ra?

Ra: I am Ra. That which has been stated in regard to the latter question will suffice to point the way for the present query.

Questioner: Finally, she wishes to know why several days ago her heart rate went up to 115 per minute and why she had extreme pain in her stomach?

Was that an Orion greeting?

Ra: I am Ra. Although this experience was energized by the Orion group the events mentioned, as well as others more serious, were proximally caused by the ingestion of certain foodstuffs in what you call your tablet form.

Questioner: Can you tell me what these tablets were, specifically?

Ra: I am Ra. We examine this query for the Law of Confusion and find ourselves close to the boundary, but acceptably so.

The substance which caused the bodily reaction of the heartbeat was called Pituitone by those which manufacture it.

That which caused the difficulty which seemed to be cramping of the lower abdominal musculature but was, in fact, more organic in nature was a substance called Spleentone.

This instrument has a physical body complex of complicated balances which afford it physical existence.

Were the view taken that certain functions and chemicals found in the healthy, as you call it, body complex are lacking in this one and, therefore, simply must be replenished, the intake of the many substances which this instrument began would be appropriate.

However, this particular physical vehicle has, for approximately twenty-five of your years, been vital due to the spirit, the mind, and the will being harmoniously dedicated to fulfilling the service it chose to offer.

Therefore, physical healing techniques are inappropriate whereas mental and spiritual healing techniques are beneficial.

Questioner: Is there any technique that we could use that we have not been using that would be beneficial for the instrument in this case?

Ra: I am Ra. We might suggest, without fractiousness, two.

Firstly, let the instrument remove the possibility of further ingestion of this group of foodstuffs.

Secondly, each of the group may become aware of the will to a greater extent.

We cannot instruct upon this but merely indicate, as we have previously, that it is a vital key to the evolution of the mind/body/spirit complex.

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do after this contact to increase the comfort as related to the psychic attack, or is there anything that we can do to make the instrument more comfortable and to improve the contact in the present situation?

Ra: I am Ra. The faculties of healing which each has commenced energizing may be used.

The entity may be encouraged to remain motionless for a period.

As it will not appreciate this, we suggest the proper discussion.

The physical appurtenance called the censer was just a degree off, this having no deeper meaning.

We do ask, for reasons having to do with the physical comfort of the instrument, that you continue in your careful efforts at alignment.

You are conscientious.

All is well.

We leave you, my friends, in the glorious love and light of the one Creator.

Go forth, therefore, rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the one infinite Creator.

I am Ra.

Adonai.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 78

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Was there some problem with the ritual we performed that made it necessary to perform the ritual twice?

Ra: I am Ra. There was a misstep which created a momentary lapse of concentration.

This was not well.

Questioner: What was the misstep?

Ra: I am Ra. It was a missed footing.

Questioner: Did this have any detrimental effect on the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. Very little.

The instrument felt the presence it has come to associate with cold and spoke.

The instrument did the appropriate thing.

Questioner: Could you tell me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. The physical complex is as previously stated.

There is some slight loss of vital energy.

The basic complex distortions are similar to your previous asking.

Questioner: The instrument would like for me to ask if there is any problem with her kidneys?

Ra: I am Ra. This query is more complex than its brevity certifies.

The physical complex renal system of this instrument is much damaged.

The time/space equivalent which rules the body complex is without flaw.

There was a serious question, due to psychic attack, as to whether the spiritual healing of this system would endure.

It did so but has the need to be reenforced by affirmation of the ascendancy of the spiritual over the apparent or visible.

When this instrument began ingesting substances designed to heal in a physical sense, among other things, the renal complex, this instrument was ceasing the affirmation of healing.

Due to this, again, the healing was weakened.

This is of some profound distortion and it would be well for the instrument to absorb these concepts.

We ask your forgiveness for offering information which may abridge free will, but the dedication of the instrument is such that it would persevere regardless of its condition, if possible.

Thusly we offer this information that it may persevere with a fuller distortion towards comfort.

Questioner: What was the experience that caused the healing of the time/space kidney?

Ra: I am Ra. This experience was the healing of self by self with the catalyst of the spiritual healer whom you call Pachita.

Questioner: Thank you.

In utilizing the energetic displacements of thought-forms energizing the instrument during contact most efficiently, what specifically could we do?


Ra: I am Ra. Each of the support group has an excess of love and light to offer the instrument during the working.

Already each sends to the instrument love, light, and thoughts of strength of the physical, mental, and spiritual configurations.

These sendings are forms.

You may refine these sendings until the fullest manifestations of love and light are sent into the energy web of this entity which functions as instrument.

Your exact sending is, in order to be most potent, the creature of your own making.

Questioner: I would like to ask the reason for this session having been longer than most previous sessions and also if there is anything that we can do to make the instrument more comfortable or to improve the contact?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument was given far more than the, shall we say, usual amount of transferred energy.

There is a limit to the amount of energy of this type which may, with safety, be used when the instrument is, itself, without physical reserves.

This is inevitable due to the various distortions such as we mentioned previously in this working having to do with growing dorsal discomfort.

The alignments are fastidious.

We appreciate your conscientiousness.

In order to enhance the comfort of the instrument it might be suggested that careful manipulation of the dorsal area be accomplished before a working.

It is also suggested that, due to the attempt at psychic attack, this instrument will require warmth along the right side of the physical complex.

There has been some infringement but it should not be long-lasting.

It is, however, well to swaddle this instrument sufficiently to ward off any manifestation of this cold in physical form.

I am Ra. I leave you, my friends, in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

Go forth, therefore, merrily rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the one infinite Creator.

Adonai.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 79

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Could you first give me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. It is as previously stated.

Questioner: The instrument would like to ask if there is any danger in the instrument receiving too much transferred energy in her present condition?

Ra: I am Ra. No.

Questioner: She would like to know the function of the energy transfer during the session?

Ra: I am Ra. The function of this energy transfer is a most helpful one in that it serves to strengthen the shuttle through which the in-streaming contact is received.

The contact itself will monitor the condition of the instrument and cease communication when the distortions of the instrument begin to fluctuate towards the distortions of weakness or pain.

However, while the contact is on-going the strength of the channel through which this contact flows may be aided by the energy transfer of which you spoke.

Questioner: We have been ending our banishing ritual prior to the session by a gesture that relieves us of the magical personality. 

I was just wondering if we should maintain this personality and omit that gesture while we are walking the Circle of One and then relinquish the magical personality only after the circle is formed or after the session? Which would be more appropriate?

Ra: I am Ra. The practice of magical workings demands the most rigorous honesty

If your estimate of your ability is that you can sustain the magical personality throughout this working, it is well. 

As long as you have some doubt it is inadvisable

In any case it is appropriate for this instrument to return its magical personality rather than carry this persona into the trance state, for it does not have the requisite magical skill to function in this circumstance and would be far more vulnerable than if the waking personality is offered as channel. 

This working is indeed magical in nature in the basic sense

However, it is inappropriate to move more quickly than one’s feet may walk.

Questioner: The archetypical mind of the Logos prior to this experiment in veiling was what I would consider to be less complex than it is now, possibly containing fewer archetypes. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. We must ask your patience

We perceive a sudden flare of the distortion known as pain in this instrument’s left arm and manual appendages

Please do not touch this instrument

We shall examine the mind complex and attempt to reposition the limb so that the working may continue

Then please repeat the query.

(Ninety second pause)

I am Ra. You may proceed.

Questioner: Only is there anything that we can do to make the instrument more comfortable or to improve the contact?

Ra: I am Ra. All is well. For some small portion of your future the instrument would be well advised to wear upon the hands those aids to comfort which it has neglected to use.

There has been some trauma to both hands and arms and, therefore, we have had to somewhat abbreviate this working.

I am Ra. You are conscientious, my friends.

We leave you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

Go forth, therefore, rejoicing in the power and the peace of the One Glorious infinite Creator.

Adonai.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 80

Ra: I am Ra. We greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

Before we initiate this working we would wish to correct an error which we have found in previous material

That Archetype Five which you have called the Hierophant is the Significator of the Mind complex.

This instrument is prey to sudden flares towards the distortion known as pain. 

We are aware of your conscientious attempts to aid the instrument but know of no other modality available to the support group other than the provision of water therapy upon the erect spinal portion of the physical body complex, which we have previously mentioned.

This instrument’s distortions of body do not ever rule out, shall we say, such flares during these periods of increased distortion of the body complex.

Our contact may become momentarily garbled

Therefore, we request that any information which seems garbled be questioned as we wish this contact to remain as undistorted as the limitations of language, mentality, and sensibility allow.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Thank you. 

Could you please give me the condition of the instrument?


Ra: I am Ra. This instrument is experiencing mild fluctuations of the physical energy complex which are causing sudden changes from physical energy deficit to some slight physical energy. 

This is due to many, what you may call, prayers and affirmations offered to and by the instrument offset by continual greetings whenever it is feasible by the fifth-density entity of whom you are aware.

In other respects, the instrument is in the previously stated condition.

Questioner: I had to leave the room for a forgotten item after we performed the banishing ritual.

Did this have a deleterious effect on the ritual or the working?


Ra: I am Ra. Were it the only working the lapse would have been critical.

There is enough residual energy of a protective nature in this place of working that this lapse, though quite unrecommended, does not represent a threat to the protection which the ritual of which you spoke offers.

Questioner: Has our fifth-density visitor been less able to affect the instrument during our more recent workings?

Ra: I am Ra. We shall answer in two parts

Firstly, during the workings themselves the entity has been bated to a great extent

Secondly, in the general experiential circumstances of your space/time experience this fifth-density entity is able to greet this entity with the same effectiveness upon the physical body complex as always since the inception of its contact with your group. 

This is due to the several physical complex distortions of the instrument.

However, the instrument has become more mentally and spiritually able to greet this entity with love thereby reducing the element of fear which is an element the entity counts as a great weapon in the attempt to cause cessation, in any degree, of the Ra contact.

Questioner: What is the reason for the fact that the entity is able to act through physical distortions that are already present as opposed to being unable to act upon an entity who has no physical distortion at all?

Ra: I am Ra. The key to this query is the term, distortion

Any distortion
be it physical, mental, or spiritual in complex nature, may be accentuated by the suggestion of one able to work magically; that is, to cause changes in consciousness

This entity has many physical distortions

Each in the group has various mental distortions

Their nature varies

The less balanced the distortion by self-knowledge
the more adeptly the entity may accentuate such a distortion in order to mitigate against the smooth functioning and harmony of the group.

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do to improve the contact or to make the instrument more comfortable?

Ra: I am Ra. The alignments are most conscientious.

We are appreciative.

The entity which serves as instrument is somewhat distorted towards that condition you call stiffness of the dorsal regions.

Manipulation would be helpful.

I am Ra. I leave you, my friends, glorying in the light and the love of the one infinite Creator.

Go forth, therefore, rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the one infinite Creator.

Adonai.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 81

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Could you first tell me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. The physical complex energy is in deficit at this particular space/time nexus due to prolonged psychic accentuation of pre-existing distortions.

The remainder of the energy complex levels are as previously stated.

Questioner: Is this the reason for the instrument’s feeling of uninterrupted weariness?

Ra: I am Ra. There are portions of your space/time in which this may be said to be symptomatic of the psychic greeting reaction.

However, the continual weariness is not due to psychic greeting but is rather an inevitable consequence of this contact.

Questioner: Why is this an inevitable consequence?

What is the mechanism of this contact that creates this weariness?


Ra: I am Ra. The mechanism creating weariness is that connection betwixt the density wherein this instrument’s mind/body/spirit complex is safely kept during these workings and the altogether variant density in which the instrument’s physical body complex resides at this space/time.

As the instrument takes on more of the coloration of the resting density the third-density experience seems more heavy and wearisome.

This was accepted by the instrument, as it desired to be of service.

Therefore, we accept also this effect about which nothing of which we are aware may be done.

Questioner: Is the effect a function of the number of sessions, and has it reached a peak level or will it continue to increase in effect?

Ra: I am Ra. This wearying effect will continue but should not be confused with the physical energy levels, having only to do with the, as you would call it, daily round of experience.

In this sphere those things which are known already to aid this instrument will continue to be of aid.

You will, however, notice the gradual increase in transparency, shall we say, of the vibrations of the instrument.

Questioner: I didn’t understand what you meant by that last statement.

Could you explain it?

Ra: I am Ra.

Weariness of the time/space nature
may be seen to be that reaction of transparent or pure vibrations with impure, confused, or opaque environs
.

Questioner: The instrument would like to know why she has a feeling of increased vital energy?

Ra: I am Ra. We leave this answer to the instrument.

Questioner: She would like to know if she has an increased sensitivity to foods?

Ra: I am Ra. This instrument has an increased sensitivity to all stimuli.

It is well that it use prudence.

Questioner: Only if there is anything that we can do to make the instrument more comfortable or to improve the contact?

Ra: I am Ra. It is difficult to determine the energy levels of the instrument and support group.

Of this we are aware.

It is, however, recommended that every attempt be made to enter each working with the most desirable configurations of energy possible.

All is well, my friends.

You are conscientious and the alignments are well.

I am Ra. I leave you in the love and the light of the one infinite Creator.

Go forth, therefore, rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the infinite Creator.

Adonai.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 83

Questioner: Could you please tell me why the instrument now gains weight after a session instead of losing it?

Ra: I am Ra. To assume that the instrument is gaining the weight of the physical bodily complex due to a session or working with Ra is erroneous.

The instrument has no longer any physical material which, to any observable extent, must be used in order for this contact to occur.

This is due to the determination of the group that the instrument shall not use the vital energy which would be necessary since the physical energy complex level is in deficit.

Since the energy, therefore, for these contacts is a product of energy transfer the instrument must no longer pay this physical price.

Therefore, the instrument is not losing the weight.

However, the weight gain, as it occurs, is the product of two factors.

One is the increasing sensitivity of this physical vehicle to all that is placed before it, including that towards which it is distorted in ways you would call allergic.

The second factor is the energizing of these difficulties.

It is fortunate for the outlook of this contact and the incarnation of this entity that it is not distorted towards the overeating as the overloading of this much distorted physical complex would over-ride even the most fervent affirmation of health/illness and turn the instrument towards the distortions of illness/health or, in the extreme case, the physical death.

Questioner: I noticed you started this session with “I communicate now” and you usually use “We communicate now.” 

Is there any significance or difference with respect to that, and then is there anything that we can do to make the instrument more comfortable or to improve the contact?

Ra: I am Ra. We am Ra

You may see the grammatical difficulties of your linguistic structure in dealing with a social memory complex

There is no distinction between the first person singular and plural in your language when pertaining to Ra.

We offer the following, not to infringe upon your free will, but because this instrument has specifically requested information as to its maintenance and the support group does so at this querying. 

We may suggest that the instrument has two areas of potential distortion, both of which may be aided in the bodily sense by the ingestion of those things which seem to the instrument to be desirable. 

We do not suggest any hard and fast rulings of diet although we may suggest the virtue of the liquids

The instrument has an increasing ability to sense that which will aid its bodily complex. 

It is being aided by affirmations and also by the light which is the food of the density of resting.

We may ask the support group to monitor the instrument as always so that in the case of the desire for the more complex proteins that which is the least distorted might be offered to the bodily complex which is indeed at this time potentially capable of greatly increased distortion.

I am Ra. We thank you, my friends, for your continued conscientiousness in the fulfilling of your manifestation of desire to serve others

You are conscientious

The appurtenances are quite well aligned.

I am Ra. I leave you, my friends, in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. 

Go forth, therefore, rejoicing merrily in the power and in the peace of the one infinite Creator. 

Adonai.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 84

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you, my friends, in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Could you first please give me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. The physical complex energy level of the instrument is in sizable deficit.

The vital energies are well.

Questioner: In the last session you mentioned the least distorted complex protein for the instrument since its body complex was capable of greatly increased distortion.

Would you define the protein of which you spoke and in which direction is the increased distortion, towards health or ill-health?


Ra: I am Ra. We were, in the cautionary statement about complex protein, referring to the distortions of the animal protein which has been slaughtered and preservatives added in order to maintain the acceptability to your peoples of this non-living, physical material.

It is well to attempt to find those items which are fresh and of the best quality possible in order to avoid increasing this particular entity’s distortions which may be loosely termed allergic.

We were speaking of the distortion towards disease which is potential at this space/time.

Questioner: What disease in particular were you speaking of and what would be its cause?

Ra: I am Ra. One disease, as you call this distortion, is that of the arthritis and the lupus erythematosus.

The cause of this complex of distortions is, at base, pre-incarnative.

We refrain from determining the other distortion potential at this space/time due to our desire to maintain the free will of this group.

Affirmations may yet cause this difficulty to resolve itself.

Therefore, we simply encourage the general care with the diet with the instructions about allergy, as you call this quite complex distortion of the mind and body complexes.

Questioner: Could you make any suggestions about the instrument’s feet or how they got in the bad shape that they are in, and if alternating the shoes would help?

Ra: I am Ra. The distortion referred to above; that is, the complex of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and lupus erythematosus acts in such a way as to cause various portions of the body complex to become distorted in the way in which the instrument’s pedal appendages are now distorted.

We may suggest care in resumption of the exercise but determination as well.

The alternation of footwear shall prove efficacious.

The undergarment for the feet which you call the anklet should be of a softer and finer material than is now being used and should, if possible, conform more to the outline of those appendages upon which it is placed.

This should provide a more efficient aid to the cushioning of these appendages.

We may further suggest that the same immersion in the waters which is helpful to the general distortion is, in general, helpful to this specific distortion as well.

However, the injury which has been sustained in the metatarsal region of the right pedal appendage should be further treated for some period of your space/time by the prudent application of the ice to the arch of the right foot for brief periods followed always by immersion in the warm water.

Questioner: The instrument asked the following question:

Ra has implied that the instrument is on the path of martyrdom, but since we all die are we not all martyred to something, and when, if ever, does martyrdom partake of wisdom?


Ra: I am Ra. This is a thoughtful query.

Let us use as exemplar the one known as Jehoshua.

This entity incarnated with the plan of martyrdom.

There is no wisdom in this plan but rather understanding and compassion extended to its fullest perfection.

The one known as Jehoshua would have been less than fully understanding of its course had it chosen to follow its will at any space/time during its teachings.

Several times, as you call this measure, this entity had the possibility of moving towards the martyr’s place which was, for that martyr, Jerusalem.

Yet in meditation this entity stated, time and again, “It is not yet the hour.”

The entity could also have, when the hour came, walked another path.

Its incarnation would then have been prolonged but the path for which it incarnated somewhat confused.

Thusly, one may observe the greatest amount of understanding, of which this entity was indeed capable, taking place as the entity in meditation felt and knew that the hour had come for that to be fulfilled which was its incarnation.

It is indeed so that all mind/body/spirit complexes shall die to the third-density illusion; that is, that each yellow-ray physical-complex body shall cease to be viable.

It is a misnomer to, for this reason alone, call each mind/body/spirit complex a martyr, for this term is reserved for those who lay down their lives for the service they may provide to others.

We may encourage meditation upon the functions of the will.

Questioner: The instrument asked if the restricted, unpublishable healing information that was given during the first book could be included in Book Four since readers who have gotten that far will be dedicated somewhat?

Ra: I am Ra. This publication of material shall, in time, shall we say, be appropriate.

There is intervening material.

Questioner: Is there any way that we can make the instrument more comfortable or to improve the contact?

Ra: I am Ra. We would ask that each of the support group be especially vigilant in the, what you would call, immediate future due to this instrument’s unbidden but serious potential for increased distortion towards illness/health.

You are most conscientious.

We thank you, my friends, and leave you in the glorious light and love of the one infinite Creator.

Go forth, therefore, rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the one infinite Creator.

Adonai.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 85

Ra: I am Ra. We communicate now.

Questioner: Could you first give me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. We ask your permission to preface this answer by the inclusion of the greeting which we use.

Questioner: That is agreeable.

Ra: I am Ra. We greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator

We were having some difficulty with the channel of energy influx due to pain flare, as you call this distortion of the physical body complex of this instrument. 

Therefore, it was necessary to speak as briefly as possible until we had safely transferred the mind/body/spirit complex of this instrument

We beg your kind indulgence for our discourtesy which was appropriate.

The condition of this instrument is as follows.

The necessity for extreme vigilance is less, due to the somewhat lessened physical complex energy deficit.

The potential for distortion remains and continued watchfulness over the ingestion of helpful foodstuffs continues to be recommended.

Although the instrument is experiencing more than the, shall we say, normal, for this mind/body/spirit complex, distortions towards pain at this space/time nexus the basic condition is less distorted.

The vital energies are as previously stated.

We commend the vigilance and care of this group.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 86

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

We communicate now.

Questioner: Would you first please give me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. The instrument’s distortion towards physical energy complex deficit has slightly increased since the last asking.

The vital energy levels have had significant calls upon them and are somewhat less than the last asking also.

Questioner: What was the nature of the significant calls upon the vital energy?

Ra: I am Ra. There are those entities which entertain the thought distortion towards this entity that it shall remove for the otherselves all distortions for the other-self.

This entity has recently been in close contact with a larger than normal number of entities with these thought complex distortions.

This entity is of the distortion to provide whatever service is possible and is not consciously aware of the inroads made upon the vital energies.

Questioner: Am I correct in assuming that you are speaking of incarnate third-density entities that were creating the condition of the use of the vital energy?

Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

Questioner: What is the present situation with our fifth-density service-toself polarized companion?

Ra: I am Ra. The period which you may call crisis remains.

Questioner: Can you tell me anything of the nature of this crisis?

Ra: I am Ra. The polarity of your companion is approaching the critical point at which the entity shall choose either to retreat for the nonce and leave any greetings to fourth-density minions or lose polarity.

The only other potential is that in some way this group might lose polarity in which case your companion could continue its form of greeting.

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do to make the instrument more comfortable or to improve the contact?

Ra: I am Ra. We are pleased that this instrument was more conscientious in preparing itself for contact by means of the careful mental vibrations which you call prayer.

This enabled the channel to be free from the distortions which the contact fell prey to during the last working.

We would suggest to the support group some continued care in the regulating of the physical activities of the instrument.

However at this nexus it is well to encourage those activities which feed the vital energies as this instrument lives in this space/time present almost completely due to the careful adherence to the preservation of those mental and spiritual energies which make up the vital energy complex of this entity.

Each is conscientious.

The alignments are good.

We would caution the support group as to the physical alignment of the appurtenance known as the censer.

There has been some slight difficulty due to variation in the pattern of the effluvium of this incense.

I am Ra. I leave you rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the one infinite Creator.

Go forth, then, rejoicing in the love and in the light of the one Creator.

Adonai

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 87

Ra: I am Ra. I greet you in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

I communicate now.

Questioner: Could you first please give me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. The distortions of the physical complex are unchanged.

The vital energy levels are greatly enhanced.

Questioner: Thank you.

In considering what was mentioned in the last session about the censer I have thought about the fact that the position of the origin of the smoke changes approximately six inches horizontally.


Would it be better to have a censer in a single, horizontal smoking position?

Ra: I am Ra. This alteration would be an helpful one given that the censer is virgin.

Questioner: What would be the optimum geometrical arrangement of censer, chalice, and candle with respect to the Bible and table and the positions that we now have them in?

Ra: I am Ra. Both chalice and candle occupy the optimal configuration with respect to the book most closely aligned with the Law of One in the distortion complexes of this instrument.

It is optimal to have the censer to the rear of this book and centered at the spine of its open configuration.

Questioner: Would a position directly between the chalice and the candle be optimum, then, for the censer?

Ra: I am Ra. This is not an exact measurement since both chalice and candle are irregularly shaped.

However, speaking roughly, this is correct.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 88

Questioner: Of all of the things that you have mentioned before for replenishing these energies, at this particular space/time, which would be most appropriate for the replenishing of both of these energies?

Ra: I am Ra. As you note, there are many factors which contribute to the aiding of the strength distortions and the amelioration of distortions towards weakness in this instrument.

We suggest to each that those many things which have been learned be conscientiously applied.

We would single out one physical distortion for discussion.

The fourth-density negative minions which visit your group at this time are energizing a somewhat severe complex of imbalances in the manual appendages of this instrument and, to a lesser extent, those distortions of the thoracic region.

We suggest care be taken to refrain from any unnecessary use of these appendages.

As this instrument will not appreciate this suggestion we suggest the appropriate discussion.

Questioner: I assume from this that our fifth-density negative companion is still on R and R. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. Your fifth-density companion is not accompanying you at this time.

However, it is not resting.

Questioner: Is the censer that we have provided all right?

It does go out prior to the end of the session.

Would it be better if it did not go out prior to the end of the session?


Ra: I am Ra. The new configuration of the censer is quite helpful to the more subtle patterns of energy surrounding these workings.

It would be helpful to have a continuously burning amount of cense.

However, the difficulty is in providing this without overpowering this enclosure with the amount of effluvium and physical product of combustion.

Having to choose betwixt allowing the censer to finish its burning and having an overabundance of the smoke, we would suggest the former as being more helpful.

Questioner: The instrument has mentioned what she refers to as bleed-through or being aware, during these sessions sometimes, of the communication.

Would you comment on this?


Ra: I am Ra. We have the mind/body/spirit complex of the instrument with us.

As this entity begins to awaken from the metaphorical crib of experiencing light and activity in our density it is beginning to be aware of the movement of thought.

It does not grasp these thoughts any more than your third-density infant may grasp the first words it perceives.

The experience should be expected to continue and is an appropriate outgrowth of the nature of these workings and of the method by which this instrument has made itself available to our words.

Questioner: The instrument mentioned a recurrence of the need to go to the bathroom prior to the session.

Is this because of the low vital energy?

Ra: I am Ra. It is part of the cause of the lowered vital energy level.

This entity has been sustaining a level of the distortion you call pain which few among your peoples experience without significant draining of the energies.

Indeed, the stability of the entity is notable.

However, the entity has thusly become drained and further has felt other distortions such as those for a variety of experiences accentuated, for this is one means of balancing the inward-looking experience of the physical pain.

Due to concern for this entity such activities have been discouraged.

This has further drained the entity.

The will to be of service to the Creator through the means of offering itself as instrument in these working, therefore, was given an opportunity for the testing of resolve.

This entity used some vital energy to fuel and replenish the will.

No physical energy has been used by the instrument, but the vital energies were tapped so that this entity might have the opportunity to once again consciously choose to serve the one infinite Creator.

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do to improve the contact or to make the instrument more comfortable?

Ra: I am Ra. We, again, ward you concerning the distortions of the instrument’s hands.

The fourth-density influence upon them could be inconvenient in that, if allowed to proceed without abatement, what you call your surgery shall be almost immediately necessary.

The alignments are good.

You have been fastidious.

We leave you, my friends, in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator.

Go forth, therefore, rejoicing merrily in the power and in the glorious peace of the one infinite Creator.

Adonai.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 89

Questioner: I have two questions, the first of which is: during the last intensive meditation here the instrument experienced very strong conditioning from an entity which did not identify itself and which did not leave when she asked it to.

Would you tell us what was occurring then?

Ra: I am Ra. We find the instrument to have been given the opportunity to become a channel for a previously known friend.

This entity was not able to answer the questioning of spirits in the name of Christ as is this instrument’s distortion of the means of differentiating betwixt those of positive and those of negative orientation.

Therefore, after some resistance, the entity found the need to take its leave.

Questioner: Was this particular entity the fifth-density visitor that we have had quite often previously?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Questioner: Is he back with us at this time?

Ra: I am Ra. No.

The attempt to speak was due to the vigilant eye of the minions of this entity which noted what one may call a surge of natural telepathic ability upon the part of the instrument.

This ability is cyclical, of the eighteen-diurnal period cycle, as we have mentioned aforetimes.

Thusly, this entity determined to attempt another means of access to the instrument by free will.

Questioner: Was this what I would refer to as an increased ability to receive telepathically over a broader range of basic frequencies so as to include not only the Confederation but also this entity?

Ra: I am Ra. This is incorrect.

The high point of the cycle sharpens the ability to pick up the signal but does not change the basic nature of the carrier wave.

Shall we say, there is greater power in the receiving antennae.

Questioner: This question may be meaningless but would a fifth-density entity of the Confederation who was positively polarized transmit on the same frequency as our negatively polarized fifth-density companion?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct and is the reason that the questioning of all contacts is welcomed by the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator.

Questioner: Question two: (name) has also felt some conditioning which was unbidden while channeling Latwii recently and in his personal meditations.

Could you also tell us what occurred in these cases?


Ra: I am Ra. The entity which has been companion has a vibratory frequency but a small amount lesser than that of the social memory complex known as Latwii.

Also, Latwii is the primary Comforter of the Confederation for entities seeking at the vibratory complex level of the one known as (name).

Therefore, this same companion has been attempting the contact of this instrument also, although this instrument would have great difficulty in distinguishing the actual contact due to the lack of experience of your companion at this type of service.

Nevertheless, it is well that this instrument also choose some manner of the challenging of contacts.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 92

Questioner: Could you first please give me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. The condition of this instrument is slightly more distorted towards weakness in each respect since the previous asking.

Questioner: Is there a specific cause for this and could you tell us what it is?

Ra: I am Ra. The effective cause of the increased physical distortions has to do with the press of continuing substantial levels of the distortion you call pain.

Various vehicular distortions other than the specifically arthritic have been accentuated by psychic greeting and the combined effect has been deleterious.

The continued slight but noticeable loss of the vital energies is due to the necessity for the instrument to call upon this resource in order to clear the, shall we say, way for a carefully purified service-to-others working.

The use of the will in the absence of physical and, in this particular case, mental and mental/emotional energies requires vital energies.

Questioner: We have been trying to figure out how to provide the instrument with the swirling waters, and we hope to do that soon.

Is there any other thing that we can do to improve this situation?


Ra: I am Ra. Continue in peace and harmony.

Already the support group does much.

There is the need for the instrument to choose the manner of its being-ness.

It has the distortion, as we have noted, towards the martyrdom.

This can be evaluated and choices made only by the entity.

Questioner: What is the present situation with the negative fifth-density visitor?

Ra: I am Ra. It is with this group.

Questioner: What prompted it to return?

Ra: I am Ra. The promptings were duple.

There was the recovery of much negative polarity upon the part of your friend of fifth density and at the same approximate nexus a temporary lessening of the positive harmony of this group.

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do about the instrument’s stomach problem or constipation?

Ra: I am Ra. The healing modes of which each is capable are already in use.

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do to make the instrument more comfortable or to improve the contact?

Ra: I am Ra. The support group is functioning well.

The instrument, itself, might ponder some earlier words and consider their implications.

We say this because the continued calling upon vital energies, if allowed to proceed to the end of the vital energy, will end this contact.

There is not the need for continued calling upon these energies.

The instrument must find the key to this riddle or face a growing loss of this particular service at this particular space/time nexus.

All is well.

The alignments are exemplary.

I am Ra.

I leave you, my friends, in the love and the light of the one infinite Creator.

Go forth, then, rejoicing in the power and in the peace of the one infinite Creator.

Adonai.

Session 94, August 26, 1982
The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 45


Questioner: I have questions here from the instrument.

The first one is, “Is our fifth-density friend responsible for the instrument’s extreme distortion towards pain during and just after sessions?”

Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

Questioner: Is there anything that we can do that we are not doing to remedy this situation so that the instrument does not experience this pain, or as much pain?

Ra: I am Ra. There Is little that can be done due to a complex of preexisting distortions.

The distortions are triple in the source.

There is the, shall we say, less than adequate work of your chirurgeons which allows for various distortions in the left wrist area.

There is the distortion called systemic lupus erythematosus which causes the musculature of the lower left and right arms to allow for distortions in the normal, shall we say, configuration of both.

Lastly, there is the nerve damage, more especially to the left, but in both appendages from the thoracic outlet.

In the course of the waking behavior the instrument can respond to the various signals which ring the tocsin of pain, thus alerting the mind complex, which in turn moves the physical complex in many and subtle configurations which relieve the various distortions.

Your friend greets these distortions, as has been stated before, immediately prior to the beginning of the working.

However, during the working the instrument is not with its yellow-ray chemical vehicle and thusly the many small movements which could most effectively aid in the decrease of these distortions are not possible.

Ra must carefully examine the mental configurations of the mind complex in order to make even the grossest manipulation.

It is not our skill to use a yellow-ray vehicle.

The weight of the cover has some deleterious effect upon these distortions in some cases and thus we mentioned that there was a small thing which could be done; that is, the framing of that which lifted the coverlet from the body slightly.

In order to compensate for loss of warmth the wearing of material warming the manual appendages would then be indicated.

Questioner: I immediately think of the instrument wearing long underwear under the robe that it now wears and an extremely light, white cover.

Would this be satisfactory?

Ra: I am Ra. Due to this instrument’s lack of radiant physical energy the heavier cover is suggested.

Questioner: Thank you. I didn’t mean to go over previous material. I should have phrased my question more carefully.

That is what I expected. I was trying to get a confirmation of my suspicion.

I suspected that. I will try to be more careful in questioning.

The second question from the instrument says, “While on vacation I uncovered a lot about myself not consciously known before.

It seems to me that I have coasted a lot on the spiritual gifts given at birth and never have spent any time getting to know my human self which seems to be a child, immature and irrational. Is this so?”

Ra: I am Ra. This is partially correct.

Questioner: Then she says, “If this is so, this seems to be part of the riddle about the manner of my beingness that Ra spoke of.

I fear that if I do not work successfully on my human distortions I shall be responsible for losing the contact.

Yet also Ra suggests the over-dedication to any outcome is unwise.

Could Ra comment on these thoughts?”


Ra: I am Ra. We comment in general first upon the query about the contact which indicates once again that the instrument views the mind/body/spirit complex with jaundiced eye.

Each mind/body/spirit complex that is seeking shall almost certainly have the immature and irrational behaviors.

It is also the case that this entity, as well as almost all seekers, has done substantial work within the framework of the incarnative experience and has indeed developed maturity and rationality.

That this instrument should fail to see that which has been accomplished and see only that which remains to be accomplished may well be noted.

Indeed, any seeker discovering in itself this complex of mental and mental/emotional distortions shall ponder the possible non-efficacy of judgment.

As we approach the second portion of the query we view the possibility of infringement upon free will.

However, we believe we may make reply within the boundaries of the Law of Confusion.

This particular instrument was not trained, nor did it study, nor worked it at any discipline in order to contact Ra.

We were able, as we have said many times, to contact this group using this instrument because of the purity of this instrument’s dedication to the service of the one infinite Creator and also because of the great amount of harmony and acceptance enjoyed each by each within the group; this situation making it possible for the support group to function without significant distortion.

We are humble messengers.

How can any thought be taken by an instrument as to the will of the Creator?

We thank this group that we may speak through it, but the future is mazed.

We cannot know whether our geste may, after one final working, be complete.

Can the instrument, then, think for a moment that it shall cease in the service of the one infinite Creator?

We ask the instrument to ponder these queries and observations.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 96

Questioner: Could you first please give me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. The physical energy deficit is significantly greater than the last asking.

There has been substantive lessening also of the vital energies, although the perquisite degree of energy for mental/emotional distortions of normalcy are yet available.

Questioner: Could you tell me the cause of the lessening of the physical and vital energies?

Ra: I am Ra. We found the need of examining the mental configurations of the instrument before framing an answer due to our reluctance to infringe upon its free will.

Those concepts relating to the spiritual contemplation of personal catalyst have been appreciated by the entity so we may proceed.

This entity has an habitual attitude which is singular; that is, when there is some necessity for action the entity is accustomed to analyzing the catalyst in terms of service and determining a course.

There was a most unusual variation in this configuration of attitude when this instrument beheld the dwelling which is to be inhabited by this group.

The instrument perceived those elementals and beings of astral character of which we have spoken.

The instrument desired to be of service by achieving the domicile in question but found its instincts reacting to the unwelcome presences.

The division of mind configuration was increased by the continuing catalyst of lack of control.

Had this entity been able to physically begin cleansing the dwelling the, shall we say, opening would not have occurred.

Although this entity attempted clear communication upon this matter, and although each in the support group did likewise, the amount of blue-ray work necessary to uncover and grasp the nature of the catalyst was not affected.

Therefore, there was an opening quite rare for this mind/body/spirit complex and into this opening the one which greets you moved and performed what may be considered to be the most potent of its purely magical manifestations to this present nexus, as you know time.

It is well that this instrument is not distorted towards what you may call hysteria, for the potential of this working was such that had the instrument allowed fear to become greater than the will to persevere when it could not breathe, each attempt at respiration would have been even more nearly impossible until the suffocation occurred which was desired by the one which greets you in its own way.

Thus the entity would have passed from this incarnation.

Questioner: Does this threat, shall I say, still exist and, if so, is there something that we can do to alleviate it?

Ra: I am Ra. This threat no longer exists, if you wish to phrase this greeting in this manner.

The communication which was affected by the scribe and then by the questioner did close the opening and enable the instrument to begin assimilating the catalyst it had received.

Session 98, September 24, 1982
The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 48

Questioner: Was the greeting as effective as it would have been if meditation had been done?

Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

Questioner: I have a question from the instrument. It states:

“Could Ra tell us what factors are allowing our fifth-density, negative companion to be able to continue greeting the instrument in the throat area as well as with other unusual sensations such as dizziness, the smelling of orange blossoms, the feeling of stepping on imaginary creatures, and what can be done to lessen these greetings?

Also, why do the greetings occur on walks?”


Ra: I am Ra. There are various portions of the query.

We shall attempt answer to each.

We tread close to the Law of Confusion, saved only by the awareness that given lack of information this instrument would, nonetheless, continue to offer its service.

The working of your fifth-density companion which still affects the instrument was, as we have stated, a potent working.

The totality of those biases which offer to the instrument opportunities for increased vital and physical strength, shall we say, were touched by the working.

The blue-ray difficulties were not entirely at an end after the first asking.

Again, this group experienced blockage rare for the group; that is, the blue-ray blockage of unclear communication.

By this means the efficacy of the working was reinforced.

The potential of this working is significant.

The physical exercising, the sacred music, the varieties of experience, and indeed simple social intercourse are jeopardized by a working which attempts to close the throat and the mouth.

It is to be noted that there is also the potential for the loss of this contact.

We suggest that the instrument’s allergies create a continuous means whereby the distortion created by the magical working may be continued.

As we have stated, it shall be necessary, in order to remove the working, to completely remove the distortion within the throat area caused by this working.

The continuous aggravation of allergic reactions makes this challenging.

The orange blossom is the odor which you may associate with the social memory complex of fifth-density positive which is known to you as sound vibration, Latwii.

This entity was with the instrument as requested by the instrument.

The odor was perceived due to the quite sensitive nature of the instrument due, again, to its, shall we say, acme in the eighteen-day cycle.

The sensation of stepping upon the small animal and killing it was a greeting from your fifth-density, negative companion also made possible by the above circumstance.

As to the removal of the effects of the magical working, we may make two suggestions, one immediate, and one general.

Firstly, within the body of knowledge which those healers known among your peoples as medical doctors have is the use of harsh chemical substances which you call medicine.

These substances almost invariably cause far more changes than are intended in the mind/body/spirit complex.

However, in this instance the steroids or, alternately, the antibiotic family might be useful in the complete removal of the difficulty within which the working is still able to thrive.

Of course, the allergies would persist after this course of medicine were ended, but the effects of the working would no longer come into play.

The one you call Jerome might well be of aid in this somewhat unorthodox medical situation.

As allergies are quite misunderstood by your orthodox healers, it would be inappropriate to subject the instrument to the services of your medical doctors which find the amelioration of allergic effects to be connected with the intake of these same toxins in milder form.

This, shall we say, treats, the symptom.

However, the changes offered to the body complex are quite inadvisable.

The allergy may be seen to be the rejection upon a deep level of the mind complex of the environment of the mind/body/spirit complex.

Thus the allergy may be seen in its pure form as the mental/emotional distortion of the deeper self.

The more general recommendation lies with one which does not wish to be identified.

There is a code name prayer wheel.

We suggest ten treatments from this healer and further suggest a clear reading and subsequent following upon the part of the instrument of the priorities of allergy, especially to your foodstuffs.

Lastly, the effects of the working become apparent upon the walking when the body complex has begun to exert itself to the point of increased respiration.

Also a contributing factor is the number of your second-density substances to which this instrument is allergic.

Questioner: Then any mind/body complex can develop cancer. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

At this time we would break our routine by making an observation.

We observe the following coincidence.

Firstly, the congestion of this instrument’s throat due to the flow of mucous caused by energized allergic reaction has, at this point, become such that we may safely predict the probability/possibility vortex approaching certainty that within one-half of an hour we shall need to depart from this working.

Secondly, as we noted the above the sound vibration made by one of your sound vibration recording devices was audible to us.

If this group desires, it may choose to have sessions which are brought to an ending soon after this sound vibration occurs.

This decision would ensure the minimal distortions within the instrument towards the discomfort/comfort within the throat until the effects of the magical working of your fifth-density companion have been removed.

The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 52
Session 102, March 22, 1983


Questioner: Would you first please give me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. The physical energy deficit of this entity is the most substantial across which we have come.

The mental and mental/emotional distortions are near to balance and the vital energy of the instrument, as a whole, is distorted towards health or strength/weakness due to the will of the instrument.

Questioner: Will Ra please tell us what caused the pain and cramping in the instrument’s stomach, and what could be done to heal it?

Ra: In order to observe the cause of physical distortions towards illness one must look to the energy center which is blocked.

In this situation, the blockage being yellow-ray, the experience has had the characteristics of that region of the chemical body.

The so-called lacuna in the wind-written armor of light and love was closed and not only repaired but much improved.

However, the distortions energized during this momentary lapse from free energy flow are serious and shall be continuing for, in all possibility/probability vortices, some of your space/time, for a predisposition to spasticity in the transverse colon has been energized.

There is also pre-existing weakness in pancreatic functions, especially that link with the hypothalamus.
There is also the pre-existing damage to portions of the liver.
These lacks or distortions manifest in that portion of the system directly proceeding from the jejunum.
Further, there is some irritation closer to the duodenum which causes the instrument to fail in assimilating foodstuffs.

This is an allopathically-caused irritation.

The diet is of central import.

We can go no further in observing the system of the entity as a full discussion of those distortions towards various weakness/strengths which contribute to the present difficulty begin with the lips and end with the anus.

We may note that the instrument has remained centered upon the Creator at a percentage exceeding ninety.

This is the key.

Continue in thanksgiving and gratitude for all things.

There are stronger anti-spasmodic drugs which the one not known to this instrument, but known as Arthur, may aid by the offering.

The recommendation to do this, being as it is that which does not retain or remove life and does further remove from the instrument its opportunities for study in this situation, needs must be withheld.

We are not in a position to recommend treatment at this space/time beyond the watching of the types of foodstuffs ingested.

Questioner: Thank you.

I’m not sure that I understood everything that you said.

The last name of this Arthur, and where he is located?

Can you give me that information?


Ra: I am Ra. We can.

Questioner: Will you please do that?

Ra: I am Ra. The entity, sound vibration Arthur, has a surname Schoen, and is of your locality.

Questioner: What foods should the instrument eliminate in her diet in order to alleviate these painful attacks?

Ra: The information gained from the one known as Bob is that which is to be recommended.

Further, all foodstuffs are to be cooked so that those things which are ingested be soft and easily macerated.

There is a complex addiction, due to long-standing eating habits, to your sugars.

It is to be recommended that, therefore, this sugar be given in its more concentrated form in your time of late afternoon, as you term it, with the ingestion of the sugared libation approximately one to two of your hours after the evening meal.

It is further suggested that since this instrument has been using sugars for carbohydrates that a small amount of carbohydrates, low in sugar, be ingested approximately one to two of your hours before the sleeping period.

Questioner: As I understand what you say, the instrument is to have no sugar until late in the afternoon. Is that correct?

Ra: I am Ra. No.

Questioner: I didn’t fully understand what you meant about when she should have the sugar.

Could you clear that up, please?


Ra: I am Ra. The concentrated sugar; that is, the dessert, the ice cream, the cookie, should be ingested at that time.

Small amounts of the fructose, maple, or raw honey may be ingested periodically for, as we have said, the chemistry of this yellow-ray body is such that the sugar is being used by blood enzymes as would carbohydrates in a less distorted yellow-ray, physical vehicle.

Questioner: I’m sorry that I am so slow at picking up precisely what we are getting at here.

I want to be sure that we get this right, so I’ll probably ask a few more stupid questions.

Was the spasm that caused the extreme pain a spasm of the ileum?


Ra: I am Ra. Partially.

The transverse colon also spasmed, as did the ducts to the liver in its lower portion.

There were also muscle spasms from the bronchial coverings down through the pelvis and from shoulder blades to hips.

These sympathetic spasms are a symptom of the exhaustion of the entity’s physical vehicle.

Questioner: Then the opening for these spasms was originally made by the yellow-ray blockage but are triggered by the foodstuff which has to do with the ingestion of sugar. Am I correct?

Ra: I am Ra. You are partially correct.

Questioner: Then what else causes the spasms?

Ra: I am Ra. We speak of two types of cause.

The first or proximate cause was a meal with too much oil and too large a burden of undercooked vegetable material.

The sugar of the dessert and the few sips of your coffee mixture also were not helpful.

The second cause—and this shall be stated clearly—is the energizing of any pre-existing condition in order to keep this group from functioning by means of removing the instrument from the ranks of those able to work with those of Ra.

Questioner: Now, there are two areas that the instrument can look to for curing this problem.

I understand that the yellow-ray blockage problem has been completely repaired, shall I say.

If this is not correct, could you make suggestions on that, please?


Ra: I am Ra.

Each entity must,
in order to completely unblock yellow ray, love all which are in relationship to it, with hope only of the other selves’ joy, peace, and comfort.

Questioner: The second thing that the instrument must do to affect this cure is to be careful of diet which includes all that Ra has just stated and that which Bob recommends from his readings.

There seem to be so many different things that can cause this spasm. I was wondering if there were a general approach to food.

Could Ra recommend those foods that the instrument could eat that would have no chance of causing a spasm.

Could Ra do that?


Ra: I am Ra. No.

Questioner: Is that because of the first distortion?

Ra: I am Ra. No.

Questioner: Why cannot Ra do that?

Ra: I am Ra. There are no foods which this instrument can take with total confidence that no spasm shall occur.

The spasming portions of the vehicle have become sensitized through great distortions towards that which you call pain.

Questioner: Is there a group of foods that is most likely to not cause the spasming or any foods that Ra could name that would be highly likely not to cause spasms?

Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

Questioner: Could Ra please state which foods are highly probable to not cause the spasming?

Ra: I am Ra.

The liquids not containing carbonation,
the well-cooked vegetable which is most light and soft,
the well-cooked grains,
the nonfatted meat such as the fish.

You may note that some recommended foodstuffs overlap allergies and sensitivities due to the juvenile rheumatoid arthritic distortions.

Further, although sugar such as is in your sweetened desserts represents a potential, we may suggest that it be included at this period for aforementioned reasons.

Questioner: Would Ra please estimate the length of time in our time periods for the probability of this problem, if we follow these curative measures, for this problem to continue with extreme severity?

Ra: I am Ra. One of your moon’s revolutions has a good possibility/probability vortex of seeing either the worsening of the spastic condition so that surgery becomes indicated or the bettering of the situation so that the diet continues be watched but the spasms be removed.

The housing of the working is within the infection within the duodenum, the stomach, the jejunum, the ileum, the transverse colon, and portions of the liver.

This shall be somewhat difficult to remove and constitutes perhaps the most efficient working to date.

We may suggest, again, that the one known as Bob may be of aid.

The one known as Stuart could, if it wished, discover the infection which is only marginally detectable but may prefer not to do so.

In this case it would be well to request physical aid from an allopathic specialist such as that which has been mentioned.

Questioner: Do you mean by that Arthur Schoen?

Ra: I am Ra. That is correct.

Questioner: You mentioned the possibility of surgery.

What would be the surgery to be done, specifically?


Ra: I am Ra. The body cannot long bear the extreme acidity which is the environment of such spasms and will develop the holes or ulcerations which then do appear upon the allopathic testings and suggest to the chirurgeon that which is to be excised.

Questioner: In other words, would this be the removal of a duodenic ulcer that would be performed?

Ra: I am Ra. If the ulceration occurs, it shall be past the jejunum, and most likely include the ileum and upper portions of the transverse colon.

May we ask for one more query of normal length as this entity, though filled with enough transferred energy, has the most fragile framework through which we may channel this and our energies.

Questioner: Obviously we would like not to get to the point of surgery.

The only other alternative that comes to mind other than the diet and the instrument’s mental work is healing through a healer, and I would like Ra’s recommendation with respect to a non-allopathic type healer and any recommendations that Ra could make for either Jim or myself to act in that capacity or anyone else that Ra could recommend so that we wouldn’t have to go through a surgical operation if it seems to become necessary.

If we could begin working on one of these other approaches right away, I think it would be highly recommended.

Would Ra comment on that, please?


Ra: I am Ra. We salute the opening of compassion circuitry in the questioner but note that that which is being experienced by this group is being experienced within an healing atmosphere.

The healing hands of each have limited use when the distortion has so many metaphysical layers and mixtures.

Therefore, look not to a healing but to the joy of companionship, for each is strong and has its feet set upon the way.

The moon casts its shadows.

What shall you see?

Link hands and walk towards the sun.

In this instance this is the greatest healing.

For the physical vehicle we can suggest far less than you had hoped.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 103
June 10, 1983

Questioner: I didn’t mean to cover previously covered material.

I was hoping-to add to this anything that we could do to specifically focus on at this time, the best possible thing that we or the instrument could do to improve these energies, the salient activity.

Ra: I am Ra. Before responding we ask your vigilance during pain flares as the channel is acceptable but is being distorted periodically by the severe physical distortions of the yellow-ray, chemical body of the instrument.

Those salient items for the support group are praise and thanksgiving in harmony.

These the group has accomplished with such a degree of acceptability that we cavil not at the harmony of the group.

As to the instrument, the journey from worth in action to worth in esse is arduous.

The entity has denied itself in order to be free of that which it calls addiction10.

This sort of martyrdom, and here we speak of the small but symbolically great sacrifice of the clothing, causes the entity to frame a selfhood in poorness which feeds unworthiness unless the poverty is seen to be true richness.

In other words, good works for the wrong reasons cause confusion and distortion.

We encourage the instrument to value itself and to see that its true requirements are valued by the self.

We suggest contemplation of true richness of being.

10 Carla made a New Year’s resolution to give up buying clothes for herself for one year.

The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 54
Session 104, July 27, 1983


Questioner: Could you first please give me the condition of the instrument?

Ra: I am Ra. The readings are somewhat less distorted towards physical bankruptcy and vital energy loss than at the previous asking.

There is still considerable bias in these readings.

Questioner: The instrument would like to know what is the optimum amount of aerobics, walking, and whirlpool exercises for the best condition at this time?

Ra: I am Ra. We shall answer in two ways.

Firstly, to speak to the general case which pertains to this instrument in varying degree.

Each form of exercise is well accomplished approximately three to four times per your week.

The amount of exercise, all quantified as one sum, is approximately one hour per diurnal period.

We now answer in a second way, distorted in this response to the duple conditions of yellow-ray, physical difficulty and mind complex distortion.

The swirling waters then must needs be viewed as being appropriate four to five of your times per week.

The walking and the exercising as much as is desired by the entity.

The total of all these should in no case exceed ninety minutes per diurnal period.

The yellow-ray, physical body has been experiencing that which is called lupoid changes in much tissue of muscle and some of the organs as well.

The exercise regains the wasting physical muscular strength.

In some ways the walking is the more appropriate exercise due to the proximity of the entity to second-density creatures, particularly your trees.

However, the habitation you enjoy does not offer such opportunity and instead offers the proximity to creations of mind/body/spirit complexes.

This does not feed the mental/emotional needs of this entity although it produces the same physical result.

The exercise fulfills more of the mental/emotional need due to the entity’s fondness for rhythmic expressions of the body such as those found in athletic endeavors derivative of the artifact system which is known among your peoples as the dance.

We suggest the support group encourage any exercise except that which exceeds the time limit which is already far beyond the physical limitations of this body complex.

It is the way of distortion that in order to balance a distortion one must accentuate it.

Thusly, the over-wearing of the body may, if correctly motivated, produce a lack of deficit at which juncture the lesser exercise limitations should be put into practice.

Questioner: The instrument has determined that the unwise use of her will is its use without the joy and faith components and constitutes martyrdom.

Would Ra comment on that, please?

Ra: I am Ra. We are pleased that the entity has pondered that which has been given.

We would comment as follows.

It is salubrious for the instrument to have knowledge which is less distorted towards martyrdom and which is rich in promise.

The entity which is strong to think shall either be strong to act or that which it has shall be removed.

Thus manifestation of knowledge is an area to be examined by the instrument.

We would further note that balancing which, in this entity’s case, is best accomplished in analysis and manifestation seated with the contemplation of silence may be strengthened by manifested silence and lack of routine activity.

We may go no further than this recommendation of regularized leisure, and desire that the entity discover the fundamental truths of these distortions as it will.

Questioner: Is there anything further that we can do to help the instrument’s stomach and back spasming problem?

Ra: I am Ra. The greatest aid is already being given to the fullest.

The encouragement of the instrument to refrain from the oil-fried nature of foodstuffs in its intake is helpful.

Cheerful harmony is helpful.

The spasms must subside as a function of the entity’s indigo-ray work and, to some extent, the recommendations made in response to a previous query.

The definitive refraining from over-stepping the already swollen boundaries of physical limitation is recommended.

The infection remains and the symptoms are now far less medicable, the entity having chosen the catalyst.

The Law of One, Book V, Fragment 55
Session 105, October 19, 1983

Questioner: I am sorry that we have to ask so many maintenance questions.

We seem to be in a confused condition now with respect to our abilities to continue in the direction that we wish to with respect to the archetypical mind.

I would like to ask what caused the symmetrical welts on the instrument’s back, and is there anything further that we can do to heal the instrument and her condition, including these welts?

Ra: I am Ra. The welting is a symptom of that which has been a prolonged psychic greeting.

The opportunity for this entity to experience massive allergic reaction from streptococcal and staphylococcal viruses has been offered in hopes that this entity would wish to leave the incarnation.

The previous occurrence of this state of the mind complex which occurred upon, in your time-numbering system, the ninth month, the twelfth day, of your present planetary solar revolution caught your fifth-density companion unprepared.

The entity is now prepared.

There have been two instances wherein this entity could have started the reaction since the first opportunity was missed.

Firstly, the opportunity to separate self from other-self in connection with the choosing of an house.

Secondly, the possible vision of self separated from other-self in regard to the dissolving of mundane bonds concerning the leaving of this dwelling.

Both opportunities were met by this entity with a refusal to separate self from other-self with further work also upon the indigo-ray level concerning the avoidance of martyrdom while maintaining unity in love.

Thusly, this instrument has had its immunal defenses breached and its lymphatic system involved in the invasion of these viri.

You may see some merit in a purging of the instrument’s yellow-ray, chemical body in order to more quickly aid the weakened body complex in its attempt to remove these substances.

Techniques include therapeutic enemas or colonics, the sauna once or twice in a day, and the use of vigorous rubbing of the integument for the period of approximately seven of your diurnal periods.

We speak not of diet, not because it might not aid, but because this entity ingests small quantities of any substance and is already avoiding certain substances, notably fresh milk and oil.

Questioner: Is there any particular place that the integument should be vigorously rubbed?

Ra: I am Ra. No.
